what is exactly meant by "overhead"
i see the column under 'structure' and it's fixed with mysql's optimize function. i was just wondering what exactly this meant
also does the export gzip and zip functions not work with big databases? i tried exporting a 100 megabyte database using gzip (using no compression works fine) and the file just stopped downloading after around 25 megabytes and when i tried to open it, it was incomplete.
"For the second question, it depends how the server is configured you can limit the size of files that can be exported, for anything of the size you're talking it would be better to use SSH."
100 megabyte files get exported fine without compression
I have no ssh access to the server :/
