    Hi

    As Zachery knows, I had this very same situation arise recently, my current host does not allow SSH access, which, apart from a spate of "downtime" was one of my reasons for moving. My new host does allow SSH

    As my site/database is still rather new/small, with a database around 9mb in size , I used the back up feature in vB to back up my database to my PC, as I had no SSH, then used SSH to restore it to my new server, worked perfect as far as I can see. Not sure if the vB back up feature is reliable on large databases? if you use SSH to restore?

    Just another "off topic" comment, I would just like to thank Zachery for his help during my move, along with a couple of other members, The support from this site, and the quality of the product, makes it all worth the money, keep up the good work!
    Sorry.....off topic

    Its easier to use SSH and mysql dump, really, you can do quite abit more though the shell.

    For my phpMyAdmin I could upload 5.5 MB. But that's it, and I already have 4.7 or something even though my forums are about 1-2 weeks old...

    So I'd HIGHLY suggest SSH access. Though phpMyAdmin is easier to use, SSH gets you all the SQL.

    At what sort of size would a database be in theory too big for phpMyAdmin? Just a rough idea.
