Hi Guys,

Can I use my WAMP server to create a mysql dump file?
I am setting up my online shop with X-Cart and they have requested I do the following:

Please provide us with the dump file, which can be generated by "mysqldump" tool.

You should use this command in the "shell":

mysqldump -h[hostname] -u[username] -p[password] [database name] > dump.sql

Does this involve me going into phpMyAdmin page, selecting the required database in the drop down list on the left and then going into the Export tab and hitting 'Go' and saving the file?

Any step by step process would help loads!!

it is 1000000 times easier to do a mysql dump with phpmyadmin. open up phpmyadmin, select your database, and click on the export tab.
