    Heya Folks,

    I'm migrating into a new server running plesk and I've got HUGE forums I mean the database size is over 200mb gzipped! so question is basically if I can use the migration manager or if there's anyway to copy a certain mysql database from the old server who ran cPanel to the new one?

    If so, please let me know how to do it.

    Thanks a bunch,
    - Ben

    Dump the database in SQL format in command line on the old server and restore in on the new server in shell. The database size does not matter.

    What are the commands?

    Sorry but I never done such a thing? I know how to work with shell but I don't know the commands..

    Can you please let me know the command to dumping the database into a file and the command to restoring a database from a file.. I guess all I need is these 2 commands and of course the wget command to transfer the file =)

    Thank you!
