How do I create a MySQL backup?
Posted by Aaron Eaton on 25 February 2015 12:09 PM

There are two ways to back up your MySQL databases. You can use the backup utility in your cPanel account or you can manually backup using phpMyAdmin. 

To manually backup using phpMyAdmin follow these steps: 
- Login to your control panel at www.yourdomain.com/cpanel 
- Click on 'phpMyAdmin' under the 'Databases' menu
- From the dropdown list to the left, choose the database you wish to export the backup from. 
- Click on the 'Export' Tab. 
- Click the 'Select All' link shown in blue, then tick the 'Save as file' box and 'Go'. 
-  You will be asked to save the .sql file to the hard drive, click 'Save'. 
- Choose the location to save to and click 'Save'.

Your database has now been exported.
