Ok, I just bought a dedicated server and I'm trying to get my forum and website moved over to it. I'm having a problem exporting the database from my old server and importing it to my new one. I've tried phpMyAdmin but I think that the database may be too big, because it just hangs and doesn't do anything when I try making a backup.
I've tried SSH with this command: "mysqldump -u db_username -p db_name > /path/to/backup.sql" but everytime it asks for my password it says that it's wrong. I know for SURE that everything is right. I wrote it down when I first made the database and it's even in the config file for my forum. I'm not sure what to do, I've been trying for the past 3 hours to find something but I can't. Thanks for any help.
