Depends on the hosting company. If you have "free" hosting then you may not have access to the database.madoues wrote: ↑Thu Dec 07, 2017 12:33 pm2) Do we as clients of hosting companies generally have access to the raw database files aside from through the PhpBB program?
In other words, if one wants to back up the whole database as a file, do hosting companies permit this? It didn't seem to reside in the root folder or any other folder that I had with the previous hosting company.
Again it depends on the hosting company anf the type of hosting plan you have, but generally you will have SQL database in your account. You will need to get the specifics from your host.
