XF 1.4 error uploading backup

I am trying to upload mysql back up and get this:

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'backup-2.5.2015_20-54-18_clubcensus/' at line 1

anyone have any idea what I should do?

What format is the backup in?
What are the first few lines of it?

Whatever it is, the syntax is incorrect.

The error is indicating that the backup is not valid in some way, possibly due to syntax.

Who took the backup and how?

If you contact your host they may be able to help.
