DATABASE BACKUP USING PHP AND MYSQL

Recommended Posts

HELPPPP!!!!!!!!!!

 

I really need help to backup existing databases on my older server. So i can move them to the new server. My older server was hacked and is now having problems with Cpanel, there is some mysql bug. I can access databases etc using php but not through cpanel. How can i make a complete backup, e.g. take all the sql out so i can implement it into the new server.

Use mysqldump...

 

http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/mysqldump.html

 

This can be used from MySQL to MySQL or any other DB supporting standard SQL. I often simply copy the DB files onto a disk and put them onto the new server manually between my two windows server - with no problems yet. ALthough I am told mysqldump is the preffered way to do it.
