Good evening
I have a blog run by WordPress, from phpAdmin I can not save the database because that is too large, around 1GB .sql file
Can you recommend a tool or a way that will be able to export a large db?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Chris,

You have a couple of options.

If you are using cPanel you can use Backup > Download a MySQL Database Backup
You can also you mysqldump from the command line.

mysqldump -u root -p password wordpress_database > wordpress_database.sql

If you have root logins of the server then you can simple dump the database with mysqldump command , move that .sql file to a FTP location and download it on your local machine with FTP.

Resetting the root MySQL can be done in a couple of ways

1. Control Panel
2. Command Line

Are you using WHM on your VPS ? If not I'll explain the command line method.

Yes I am using WHM and cPanel on my VPS, I would like to export MYSQL database via command line method. Dong this via phpmyadmin is very slow and sometimes it's interrupted with large mysql databases.

This will allow you to change the MySQL root password if you don't know what it is.

SQL Services > MySQL Root Password

When you run the mysqldump command it will output the .sql file in the current directory from where mysqldump was run, using my example.

Great advice given above in regards to exporting it, in the case of importing I would suggest using Big dump. It is not only reliable but also very simple to use.

I have been using it for some time now.

I used Bigdump for importing database and it worked as well but never know how to use it for exporting a MySQL database.

phpmyadmin usually has the option to export a GZIP compressed copy of the db which would shrink the size substantially. If you have command line access, as others have suggested, use mysqldump but you might be hitting a timeout configuration directive that is causing it to fail
