    Not sure what's up, but when I back up MYSQL in cpanel it's a lot smaller than the size of the database.

    Example:

    Under current database, the DB is listed at 700MB.

    Downloading it through the backup cpanel function only gives me a 315 MB .sql.

    Is there a setting somewhere that limits the download size? I have root access to the server. Thanks.

    Hello,

    Do you notice any output to /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log when downloading the database from cPanel?

    Thank you.
