Mysql database backup

Hi all, what’s the best way to backup a large mysql database of around 300MB to email please?

Why would you send a 300MB file via email? Surely you have a better way to store the backup yes?

Looking for ideas at the moment - what ideas do you have on this?

You can rsync it to another server, you can send it over FTP to another server, you can download it and store it locally, you can put it on a tape drive…

It’s not a good idea to send such a big file via email.
If your database backup takes long time to proceed you can configure another server as a slave on the other location (via master-slave MySQL replication) and then backup that slave server instead of master.
