    Note, the only reliable method of backing up and restoring a database is with shell access via telnet or ssh. Please see the instructions here:

    Thanks, Steve.

    Also - a word to any other newbs like me: mySQL is case-sensitive. I kept trying to use Root instead of root for my command lines and I couldn't understand why it was erroring. Oh well.

    Backup is dumping to screen, not file.

    VB 2.2 - Winders 2003

    I just got the server/forum up this evening and the backups are not going to the file specified - all is going to the screen instead.

    Security setting?
