Hello,

Database raw files are located in "/var/lib/mysql" directory. You can take backup of the mysql databases using the following command.

mysqldump db_name > db_name.sql

Regarding the license, are you going to migrate the accounts to a new server ? If yes, you can take backups from backend and restore it in new server. Or renew license for one more month and proceed with the migration. So you will get one month to schedule and do the migration.

Hello,

The previous post is correct. As far as the license, you'd need to direct all license questions to [email protected] via email.

Thank you.

Hey can you tell me where can i find my sql database files to edit the tables in cpanel
You can use phpMyAdmin to manage or edit your databases. It should be listed as an option under the Databases section in cPanel.

Thank you.

Hi, im also not able to find and locate my sql data file pls help me.
As a website owner without root access, you'd need to manage your databases via "cPanel >> phpMyAdmin".

Thank you.
