hi, maybe someone can point me to a relevent thread?
i am simply looking at how to export a database from a website to my local pc, but just cant seem to find the correct procedure.
i have downloaded xampp and am just not sure where to go next.
the website is one i have been asked to rehost on a new server,so i need to pull an up to date copy of the db so i can put it onto the new server.
i have the ip address, and all permissions to download the database (i have the user, pw and db name)

sorry for the inconvenience!

You need to export the database from the server on which it is hosted. Use the database admin. facilities of the hosting server to export the database - such as the phpMyAdmin which is included in XAMPP.

i don't have access to the server where it resides, just have been given the ip address, username, p/w and db name

If you are going to host this website on a new server you will also need the other files - html, scripts etc so how are you going to do this?

Presumably the current operators have access to the website so they can get all the files including the database and pass them to you.
