Backup your batabases w/o phpmyadmin

next I often read threads about export/import data from MySQL and it’s always mentioned phpmyadmin as the only way to do that (with PHP indeed).
But that’s not true, and it’s indeed the slower way to do that, expecially when importing large database files (because phpmyadmin has problems with large db)…
This would be just a reminder 🙂
Use an SSH client, like putty (if your database is on a remote server), to connect to your server and export the databse you want simply with:

blank http://www.srisiddheswariseva.org/where-to-buy-dissertation-start-your/ mysqldump –user=username –password=1234 –databases your_database –opt –quote-names –allow-keywords –complete-insert | bzip2 -c > your_database.sql.bz2

source url

http://apt-online.ch/?do-your-homework-early download the .bz2 file created, unzip it using 7-zip (if you dont have any other uncompress utility), and backup your database in mysql using:

source site mysql –user=username –password your_database < your_database.sql

get that’s faster than using “import” from phpmyadmin
