    Okay I got through the admin panel to try and backup using phpmyadmin .,. I select all then save file as either zip or tar or nothing and then click go.. I get the usual wait time then get the popup asking where to save file .. I select a folder then click okay.. it shows it is download complete but data is empty.. Database is around 20meg and has been before I upgraded to 8.3 .. Used to download fine..

    Try increasing memory_limit in PLESK_ROOT_DIR/admin/conf/php.ini and restarting Plesk.

    I have the same problem

    I'm trying to backup a database, and I keep getting an empty export page (or if I try to "save as file" - a zero size file).

    just to test the solution given above, I've increased the memory_limit in php.ini to 256M, and phpmyadmin now allows me to export larger tables. but it still returns an empty export for a 120MB database.

    using plesk 8.3.0 on a linux server.

    can anyone please help with this?
