  • Question about backups

    I have just done a back of my database for the first time. The database is 380MB big, but the backup only appears to be just over 70MB. Does this sound right to you. I assume some kind of high level compression is performed on the backup sql file?

    It sounds like your backup wasn't complete. How did you perform it?

    Did you do it via Telnet or SSH?

      I did it via the Admin CP, using the back up tables option.

        That's not really a reliable method for large databases. You should use SSH or Telnet. (see my link above)
