I remember when my forum was small it was easy. I just copied everything from the root folder and downloaded the mysql data from the phpmyadmin
Now that my forum is larger the mysql file is larger possibily 1 GB or larger. I am unable to download the mysql file from the phpmyadmin. I've used a script called mysqldumper in the past. Does this work for big myql files too?
So what i plan to do is:
Copy everything from root folder and move it to the new server.
But how do i download the mysql data? and how to import it to the new server.
