    Apologies if I'm misinterpreting the questionl; I'm not 100% sure what exactly you're wanting to do. Are you looking to parse the data? There's umpteen different things available for this.
    Wikipedia-SQL Dump Parser seems to be fairly reputable. But there's many available.

    Also, this manual covers, fairly comprehensively, how to import an XML Data Dump, like Wikipedia's. [MANUAL: Importing XML Dumps]

    What kind of data dump have you taken? I'm sure Wikipedia Data Downloads primarily use either XML, JSON, or RDF. But I may be entirely wrong.

I want to import wiki database file to my system and parsing.When i downloaded database file. There are different kind of file type. But i don't understand data structure of database. How they connect each other. Can you explain me?
