Re: Restoring a Backup

United Kingdom


Database Backup and Restore from the admin menu is broke sad

Chealer9 added this to the branch-1-8: Warning : Backups are known not to work since some time now. Don't rely on them. Chealer9 20031117

But I think this also extends to the 1.7.5

If you need to backup the database the best way is with either phpMyAdmin downloadable from http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpmyadmin or just using the mysqldump command directly at console.

To backup:
mysqldump -u dbuser -p dbname > dump.sql
will ask for the password and backup dbname to dump.sql

To restore:
mysql -u dbuser -p dbname < dump.sql
will ask for the password
