Thanks for this much-needed tutorial.

I had no problems installing mysqldumper, but I have had some with creating directory protection, which, according to the msqldumper homepage, is urgently required. I keep getting this message: "There was an error while creating the directory protection !
Please create the 2 files manually with following content". I don't even know which two files it's asking for, unless it wants separate files for the username and the password.

Sorted the situation out through cPanel. Everything is AOK now.

I'd try resetting counters in the maintenance section of your Admin CP.

I have used it to move a database from one server to another. I had never been so succesful in restoring a database!

Thanks you very much TruthElixirX

If your post supports Pearl.


It is a cron job you can run in some of the settings.

I have MySQLDumper running without any problem. This is a great tool to use. Thanks for the recommendation.

I would like to add something done like sending an email to an email account on another server. How would I do that?

This is a great tool for me as my host company Webserve.ca is trying to hold us hostage by not allowing us to do DB backup's. I have one question, when looking at my backups in an editor what is the output I should be looking for in the file to let me know it was done correctly.
Great product easy to install highly recommended it.
The output I got at the bottom of the table was this

--
-- Data for Table `xperience_shop_ta`
--

/*!40000 ALTER TABLE `xperience_shop_ta` DISABLE KEYS */;
/*!40000 ALTER TABLE `xperience_shop_ta` ENABLE KEYS */;

SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=1;
-- EOB

Installed and backed up. What a piece of cake. Great post!

Now my question for anyone with the time to explain. I want to install a test forum to upgrade with vb4. How do I go about restoring this backup to a new database that I can then use for my test forum? Do I even need to make a new database? I am a total n00b at this so forgive my ignorance.

Thanks!

Hello,

I have a brand new forum and worked so much to get all the content on their. www.wfgsp.com

Now I need to know something. I am currently still a large noob but I get most things if simply explained.

So please please answer the following question for me


Other then backing up with database with the proiveded method, do i also have to download the physical forum through ftp and upload that to the new server? So basically to transfer to a new server. I just have to upload all the ftp files and upload the database with the provided method here?

Please guide me steps to successfully move my forum to a new server.

Thank you so much in advance, I will be most grateful.

-Sam
