  • Database backup without telnet - plz help!

    Unfortuntatly, i am going to have to move the database my forums run off - the problem is that the host i use dont allow telnet for the hosting service i have.

    What they do have are some options in the control pannel - that look a lot like this....



    and this...



    i am really not that familiar with MySQL, databases and such - is it possible to backup the database using these tools? Is it possible to backup the database using tools in the VB admin control panel?

    Also, i will need to back the database up somewhere on my own computer, as of yet i dont have another host.

    Any help here would be VERY much appretiated - i have worked hard to build up my member list and posts over the last month, and really dont want to lose it all :-(

    If you want to use phpmyadmin ( i have an example) but with yours:
    There are only 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't

      ok, i start the database dump, but after about 30 secs- i start getting these errors:-

      and then, about another 10-15 secs later, i get a 'The page cannot be found' 404 error

      any ideas!?!?

        you can ask your web host nicely to do the mysql dump for you via telnet and ask them to place the sql dump file for you into your account's accessible ftp space so you can download it.
