### Re: phpbb_db_backup

Thanks for the quick answer but i dont know what that means or how to do it .
What i say is my opinion . If you dont like it or dissagree with it lets talk about it and try to come to an agreement . Im not to old to learn or change my opinions if they are wrong .

### Re: phpbb_db_backup

As obscene as it may sound I think it's worth a shot to set post_max_size to 1g and memory_limit to 3g and try again...

### Re: phpbb_db_backup

These go in php.ini. Start by locating this file on your computer. Hopefully you have it and it has a bunch of stuff in it.

How much memory does your computer have?

### Re: phpbb_db_backup

Command line is the fastest way. PHP will take a long time, especially if it's POSTing large amounts of data all the time.

Code: Select all

C:\xampp\mysql\bin\mysql.exe -u db_username -p db_password database_name < "C:\path\to\backup.sql"

### Re: phpbb_db_backup

Since it's Windows, it's just Start --> Run --> cmd
Then type in the command I gave, replacing the values with the correct ones of course.

### Re: phpbb_db_backup

I tried the first way and it got up to 7% and then i got a white screen and it stoped .
Then i tied the second way and i cant get that to work either . Im sure i must have made a mistake changeing the code you posted and trying several combinations .

This isnt urgent and i have loads of time .

C:\xampp\htdocs\phpBB3

Paste this into the command line:

Code: Select all

C:\xampp\mysql\bin\mysql.exe -u root -p  phpbb < "C:\xampp\htdocs\dump\phpbb_db_backup.sql"
If you get an error, write it down and post back.

### Re: phpbb_db_backup

It said enter password . I wrote root and it said
ERROR 1045 <20000> : Acess denied for user "root"@"localhost" <useing password ; YES>
Then i tried writeing administrator as the password and got the same . Then i tried it with no password and clicking enter and nothing happened exept that it blinked at me .

This is getting like an agatha christy mystery to solve and the more i dont suceed the more i want to try . Its fun .

### Re: phpbb_db_backup

Try this:

Code: Select all

C:\xampp\mysql\bin\mysql.exe -u root phpbb < "C:\xampp\htdocs\dump\phpbb_db_backup.sql"
By default xampp's username is root and there is no password. I probably should not have include the -p switch.

### Re: phpbb_db_backup

Nothing happened exept that zonealarm , like each time ive tried , asked for permission to get into the net . I pressed allow .

Maybe i should start from the beginning again and put xampp and phpbb in again and do all the file changes again and try again ?
