Database Backup -- Will this work


Guest

Recommended Posts

I'm gonna uninstall Mac OS X (10.2.5 -- Jaguar) and install Gentoo Linux. My question is this:

 

I have backed up the database, when I install Linux how do I restore the database form the backup I made?

 

Thanks. :)

Why uninstall OSX? You gonna run headless? If so maybe OSX server is a good option.

 

Backing up should be "no problem" just do a dump with inserts (data, schema) through phpmyadmin and then do an sql query through phpmyadmin again.

 

cheers

I'm installing Linux because I like it better... Mac OS 10.2 Jaguar is the absolute BEST, but The Gimp, etc... it's a pain in the butt to have to loadup X-Darwin then loadup The Gimp, XMMS, or any other X11 software... that and alot of stuff for Mac is shareware... I can get the equivalents for X11/Linux native for free. :)

 

Just because I own a Power Mac G4 doesn't mean i'm super rich.

ahh, I hear yah.

 

I personally never shutdown my computer unless I have to ... helps me get around those pesky problems.

 

I'm on a iBook 14" 700 ... (I bought it used) so I'm not even rich enough to buy a desktop :?
