Mysql Dump Question...regarding gigantic file
Hello. I am trying to recover a database for a 118 mb file for a client
I tried phpmyadmin and saw there were 10,000 + rows and the browser crashed trying to display them
so I attempted to do a mysql dump, and it just pauses in the command line, and the file grew to 200+ mb
How long should it take to do the dump? IT was growing to 200+ mb before I shut out of telnet. I felt it would not stop growing lol
Or is it possible that it CAN be 200+ mb and I should NOT worry?
When I waited 3 minutes and saw mysql did not confirm it was done, I got a bit spooked
What should I do? And is there a way to conserve memory when I do the dump?
