  • Bigdump

    I heard about this bigdump program and I want to try it because i'm having trouble with the SSH restore method....but i'm also confused as to what i'm supposed to do. Can someone explain how to use bigdump?

    I have never heard of a program called "bigdump."

    What problems are you having with the restore command?

        No errors are returned when you enter that command?

            Make sure the path is correct. For example, if the file is in the current directory, then don't use a path:

            Code:
            backupname.sql
            If it is in some other directory, then specify the full path:

            Code:
            /path/to/backupname.sql

              I too am having a bit of trouble figuring out how to use bigdump (http://www.ozerov.de/bigdump.php). From all mentions of it, this appears to be a script to allow you to backup your large mysql databases. However, once I've got it installed, it only seems to upload already-existing backups.

              Anyone familiar with this script, is there a step I'm missing?

                AFAIK it only updates existing databases.
                If you have moved your database to another server you do need to create a new one.
                I use cPanel or you can use phpMyAdmin to create new databases. You don't need to add any tables.

                Set your database configuration.
                // Database configuration

                $db_server = "localhost";
                $db_name = "";
                $db_username = "";
                $db_password = "";
                Upload a copy of your backup mySQL file to where you uploaded bigdump and run it.
