  • How...Move a 250 Meg Database?

    I've got my forums, and for backup purposes I'd like to be able to transfer the entire database to another server. I've only got FTP and PHPMyAdmin can I do this? I can't do a MyAdmin dump because the post table is too big and it times out, so I have to be able to move it cross-server somehow. How?

    you need telnet or ssh access to the server to avoid the timeout problem. do you have either of those? if not you should contact your host and see if they will give you that access. if they don't then ask them if they can make a dump of your database for you.
