How do I backup my MySQL database?

You can backup your database using the PHPMyAdmin feature in your control panel. In PHPMyAdmin, select the database you want to backup and select "Export" tab on the right screen. Choose the tables you wish to backup (or "Select All" for all tables). Scroll down and tick "Save File As..." and click on the "Go" button. Simply save the database that begins to download, on your local computer.
