    Backup and restore MySQL databse (phpBB 3.0)

    Hey guys, I haven't ever done it, so can you give me some information on backing up and restoring database. After my experiments with database I create an error, so forums are not working anymore Although the database is not damaged or anything, its like it were.
    I will have to reinstall phpBB forums, but I want to keep my database with all the users and info. I never restore a database, so how does it work? Do you just upload it?

    Thanks in advance.

    there are some option for backup and restore in cpanel, if you use it, and probably in plesk or what you use.
    Another way is to do both, backup and restore, manualy if you have access thru ssh.

    best regards
