upcoming chaos

so I’ve finally gotten hosting space elsewhere, but it may take me a bit to switch over…expect a hiccup somewhere in the next week or so.

oh, and on that note: I’m having trouble getting to cpanel & phpmyadmin. anybody know any tricks for backing up databases w/out having that access? (I can write PHP, and if I haven’t gotten to it in a day or two, I’ll just guess at what databases I’ve got, and write some scriptage to do it myself. but I’d appreciate any shortcuts, of course.)

  1. I usually just ssh in to shell and execute the command “mysqldump databasename > databasename.sql”. That of course assumes you’re using MySQL.

  2. Ralph,

    My webhost doesn’t provide ssh. It is on the list of things I MUST HAVE the next time I switch hosts.

  3. That assumes I’ve ever used ssh…which I haven’t. honestly, I’m not sure if they provide it or not…but I’ll look into that, too.

  4. Well, I figured out how to use PuTTY, but I don’t have shell access. 🙁 But at least I learned something.
