Hello,

which way can i backup 70mb big mysql cpanel database so i dont reach my PHP limits (execution time, max memory etc..)?
It appears my automatic php backup script no longer works because mysql is too big. Any AUTOMATED mysl backup script which can backup in batches or with delays so limits are not reached?

Hello :)

I recommend backing up the database via the command line with the mysqldump utility. EX:

Code:
mysqldump database_name > /path/to/database_name.sql
Thank you.
