    Trying to export Joomla database without phpmyadmin

    Hi,

    I am trying to export my Joomla 1.5.23 mysql database. I have no phpmyadmin. I used several ways like this (http://faq.1and1.com/web_space__access/mysql/13.html) but I get an error message saying:
    "There was an error during export. Please check your values:
    MySQL Database Name: HIDDEN
    MySQL User Name: HIDDEN
    MySQL Password: NOTSHOWN
    MySQL Host Name: localhost

    I found my database information (username, password, database name) from the configuration.php file in Joomla's directory. I also tried the prefix in front of the Database's name.

    Does anyone have any clue what the problem might be?

    Thanks a lot for time and effort putting on this.

    Just in case...

    You obfuscate the other settings but possibly not the host name. You also mention retrieving only three of the four fields (leaving out host name).

    You got the actual hostname from the link below (or the script) right?

    I'm sure some folks around here would be happy to get more involved if people posted tasks here and offered a few bucks.

    Beware, code snippets in my posts are meant as examples... they certainly may contain typos.
