Thanks for solution.

My problem is that where should I give the command for mysqldump in XAMPP environment ?

Because I created a msql data through XAMPP on my Laptop and now I want to shift that data on my ISP server.

You would use phpMyAdmin in XAMPP to do all your database manipulations.


Select or create your database then look for
Export = dump a database to an sql file
Import = import an exported/dumped database sql file.

There is a Documentation and a Wiki link on the phpMyAdmin main/home page

BTW Dump is a Grey Beard term and has been superseded by the term Export.

Take a look at the new DeskTopXampp launch control posted by ridgewood: ... 967#103967

The DeskTopXampp launch control for XAMPP and XAMPPlite (DTX.exe)
is available here:

I highly recommend DTX.
