Phpmyadmin Backup installation help!


New Member
ok here is my problem... I just recently bought new webhosting and I'm trying to move the server mysql databases from one server too another. the problem is every attempt i do too move the database fails. Does anyone have a tutorial on how too install a Mysql database backup on a new server?


Ask your new hosting provider. The easiest way is to tar all the databases that are yours that are located in /var/lib/mysql directory and then wget them from the other server.
