Now that we have a site archive file, we need to get this imported into our Pantheon account. In this tutorial we will do just that. In the process we will look at the two different interfaces for doing an import. For our single-file site archive, we can use the default interface, but if you have three separate files for the database, code base, and files, we'll look at how to get those uploaded as well. If your site is too large to import using the Pantheon dashboard UI, then you should check out the instructions for Importing a Large Site on the Pantheon website.
