    just about to go from Beta1 > Beta2, could someone please give me some advice about settings for phpMyAdmin dump?

    I've got this ...

    Do I need anything more?

    Many thanks

    That's all you need.

    You select all the tables, say its sql, select to include structure, and include data, and to save as a file.

    The default are fine.

    If you can have shell access, ignore phpmyadmin completely and just use the shell to dump - no timeout limits, etc.

    I would select Add Drop Table. This way if a newer DB modified fields, when (if) you decide to Import your back-up, the importing process will drop any existing tables to replace them with the copy you are importing.
