Topic: Backing up a mySQL database?
I've installed PunBB 1.1.5 onto my guild's site some time ago, and it's working fine. However, now I would like to upgrade to PunBB 1.2 so that I can have proper class management and private messanging, among other things.
I downloaded 1.2, and have the upgrade scripts, however, fear that something may go wrong, as usually, things do.
So, I would like to back up my mySQL database. The db is only like 500k altogether, but it'd be a shame to lose all those posts.
I have full access to the OS X box running the BB, command line and graphical. I looked around, googled my heart out, but could not find concrete intructions on how to back up mySQL.
This is all the default OS 10.3 Server stuff, and PunBB is installed into the default mySQL db (I know that's a bad idea, but I don't know how to admin mySQL.)
Thanks to all in advance!
