Creating a MySQL Backup with PHPmyAdmin
The first step is to log into your database through PHPmyAdmin. If you are on a windows server you would do this through WCP by clicking on the link that says PHPmyAdmin and then choosing the database from the dropdown. If you are on a linux server you will just click on PHPmyAdmin and it will load it.
