  • Database back-up trouble on a Mac

    When I try and back-up my database, I save it as a file, open it in text edit, and at the bottom there are TONS of weird symbols like

      I have tired microsoft word and text edit, and neither work. I have had a co-admin file send it to me, and still no avail.

        the wierd symbols are probably binary data from the attachment / customavatar table.

            You don't want to if you plan to restore the backup, if it's needed.

              So those weird characters are expected?

                Do you only see weird characters in the back up file... and the weird character alone?

                Or do you see something like "INSERT INTO word" at the end of the .sql file?
