How to Export a Database using phpMyAdmin in cPanel?

Log into phpMyAdmin

If you are an InMotion Hosting customer: Log into your cPanel and click the phpMyAdmin icon under the Databases heading.

Click on the database you are working with in the left menu.


Click Export in the top menu.

In the next screen select the format and the export method. Quick works in most cases and we will stick to that for the format since this is a pretty small database we will use SQL. If you’re working with a larger database you should go with a compressed format such as zip or gzip. This is available only in the Advanced mode.

Click Go

You will be prompted to either open or save the file. Please select the option to save the file and then save the somewhere you’ll remember (such as directly on your desktop).

Congratulations, you have just exported a copy of your database!
