Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ HUGE database exporting

Posted by: cysten Mar 7 2013, 08:24 PM

Hi I have a big problem.

I just took on a new client and their hosting is annoying. They have a partition around the mysql database limiting it to 20 GB. My clients database is over 15 GB.

We need to move the database off the server. However, I'm pretty sure that a sql export will cause the system to crash.

What I need to do is have mysql send the sql file out as a stream across SSH to the new server.

Anybody know how to do this?

Maybe this will work.
