How do I create an export or dump of a very large database?


Log in using PuTTY or another SSH client.

from the command line.


mysqldump -u dbusername -pdbpassword database > dumpfile.sql


Notice the space between -u and dbusername

and also, notice that there is NO space between -p and dbpassword.
