    Post Import & Export database in MySQL with mysqldump

    With magento, we usually meet a big database size what can't import/export via phpmyadmin. For the safe and professional way to do import/export database let 's do it in command line.


    Export A MySQL Database

    This example shows you how to export a database. It is a good idea to export your data often as a backup.

    Using SSH, execute the following command:

    Code:
    mysqldump -p -u username database_name > dbname.sql
    You will be prompted for a password, type in the password for the username and press Enter. Replace username, password and database_name with your MySQL username, password and database name.
    The file dbname.sql now holds a backup of your database and is ready for download to your computer.

    Import A MySQL Database

    The file must be in .sql format. It can not be compressed in a .zip or .tar.gz file.

    Start by uploading the .sql file onto the server

    If you haven't already done so, create the MySQL database via the cpanel.

    Using SSH, navigate to the directory where your .sql file is.

    Next run this command:

    Code:
     mysql -p -u username database_name < file.sql
    Note: The -p will prompt for your account's password.

    Note: username is the user with rights to the database. If you are unsure what the username is you can use the same username and password used to sign into SSH.

    In almost case, magento database is too big because of log. So that let 's delete all of log before backup. You can see more detail about this in article Optimize magento database by Cleaning log

    Fare. To Export a database, open up terminal, ensuring that you are not signed into MySQL and type, mysqldump - u [username] - p [database name] > [database name].sql.

    Import.

    Stage One—Shut Down MySQL.

    Stage Two—Access MySQL Safe Mode.

    Stage Three—Set Up a New Password.
