After being unable to recover my DB recently, I see the need to do a backup. In PhpMyAdmin, I see an Export button. I opened it up and did an export to a .sql file. However it did not save it in the right place. By default, it saved it in my "users/downloads" directory. I would think it should be saved in the "xampp/mysql/backup" folder. Is that correct? Now, my question is, how do I save it to a folder of my choice?
Also, is Export the same as a backup? I want to make sure I don't loose any data in the future.
Thanks for any help.
