Exporting a MySQL database from the command

Command line access to MySQL is available but access is restricted to the Pulsant shell server. Shell access is available on all Pulsant webspace accounts but is disabled by default, if you would like this enabled simply email [email protected] and we will do this for you.

This will ask for your database password, will export the SQL file and return you to a command prompt. You will then be able to download the file from your Linux web space if required.

Note that <server name>, <user name> and <database name> should be substituted by the details specific to your database, see the MySQL server details.
