Use this section to create a dump of your current MySQL database.
Be aware that some hosting companies do not allow creating database dumps with the method below and that this function may not work correctly with every server.
Be sure to review your data after completing the backup to ensure it is accurate. It is recommended to use this function as a secondary backup, since many hosting companies provide their own backup methods.
