Quick Tutorial on how to back up and restore DB

Recommended Posts

Guest dreamkingdom

I'm another Newbie here! :wacko: Where do I find this "PHPMyAdmin" area? Is it in my Cpanel? I guess y'all are used to these beginner's questions...

I need to have some mods installed and have been told to backup my cubecart files and database....I have read a little bit of the tutorial on the backup...Does it cover every single step for the novice to follow and get it right... if not, can someone give me the "baby step" instructions..LOL

Thanks so much for any help you can offer...

Look forward to hearing from you.

Peace,

Stephanie

Just thought I would pipe up and say I had to use this today, switched hosting. after installing cubecart fresh again, then loading all my images, I then imported my database that I thankfully saved just days ago. I got one error during the install. Sorry I didn't copy the error down. But all appears well so far, no issues.. all cat, products and images populated where they were supposed to.

Again No issues noted as of yet.

A lot of people .are. either changing webhosts, wanting to backup or restore their databases...

Did this and divined a major mess-up spot in the procedure. It involves backing up (moving/copying) from/to a *nix platform and IIS6 platform. On an IIS6 platform, the mySQL system variable "lower_case_table_names" probably should be set equal to 2 as this will preserve the case of table names during a CREATE statement.

I had requested a SQL script be created by phpMyAdmin of my (production) store running *nix, then executed that script on a localserver (development) store running IIS6. The table names all came out lower case as viewed in MySQL Query Browser (MySQL AB). Knowing that PHP is case-sensitive, I was concerned what problems this might cause.

Apparently none.

However, going the other way may be highly problematic - IMHO. If the MySQL administrator on the IIS6 system allows for the total disregard of lettercase, I see problems ahead when moving/copying a store to *nix. The MySQL system variable "lower_case_table_names" may be by default set to equal 1 during installation on IIS6 systems, which is to CREATE all table names in lowercase and to convert all queries to lowercase.

(Corrections to my conclusions are welcome.)

I plan to use your tutorial, however, I do not know how to access the starting point, myphpadmin. I am new to cubecart and need to backup my data. I installed CubeCart in the root and I need to reinstall it into a subdirectory then import the data in the new install then uninstall the cube cart that is in the root. Please advise?

Thanks

I completed the backup, how do I know it's good?

I need to install cube cart in a sub folder, the install first wants me to remove existing which is in my root.

THANK YOU jmartinez for these instructions - the screenshots are especially useful! :o

Since I've gone from 1) Not having a clue about backing up databases, or using phpMyAdmin, to 2) Successfully making my first database backup, can I add a few extra hints for beginners using 1 and 1 hosting, like me?

I don't have CPanel, or at least I don't think so. But phpMyAdmin is already on the 1 and 1 site.

So if you use them, go to:

1. Control Panel > Look for 'Websites and Applications' > Click on 'MySQL Administration' icon.

You should see a panel with your Cubecart database information there. That's the one you set up to install Cubecart. The 'phpMyAdmin' button is on the panel. Click that.

4. This brings up the phpMyAdmin screen. However, instead of a dropdown box in the top left, you may find a clickable link saying 'db89898989...'. Click that.

5. You should then have a screen which looks a lot like the one in the tutorial. Follow the instructions to the letter.

6. A problem: I couldn't rename the database on saving it. Doing so left me with a corrupted file. When I saved with the name 1 and 1 gave it, it worked. I was able to rename the file afterwards.

7. Check the downloaded file content: it should contain recognisable data, and not a corrupted jumble.

Hope this helps someone. Thanks for reading!

Hi,

I read the tutorial and i tried to back up my database but couldn't. I went into phpmyadmin and followed the instructions on how to back up the database but i get the following message.

export.php: Missing parameter: what (FAQ 2.8)

export.php: Missing parameter: export_type (FAQ 2.8)

I dont think it is anything to do with the cubecart database because i tried exporting other databases and i keep getting the same message i think the problem is with phpmyadmin.

I have looked at the FAQ 2.8 but i have no idea what that is talking about.

Can someone please explain simply how to fix phpmyadmin. If not could someone suggest another easy to use piece of software. Is there a way to find the mysql database file on my server and just transfer it by FTP?

Thanks.

Have you asked your hosting company? They should be able to provide support specific to your problem.

hey,

Thanks. I asked them but they didnt provide much help. I got it to work now i stopped using phpmyadmin, instead i just used the backup function in my cpanel it worked and i think its easier than using phpmyadmin.

Thanks.

I have a question regarding the skins, etc when restoring your back up. I did a back up and restor trial, but my images and changes to the skin, etc did not show up on my restore - how do I get those modifications into my restore after a back up?

Thanks in advance for the info.
