How to Back Up Your MySQL Database on Yahoo Hosting

Yahoo provides a tool in the Web Hosting Control Panel for performing a backup of your MySQL database. You will need to be the Store Owner or have the Administrator role assigned to access the Web Hosting Control Panel.

We strongly recommend that you run regular backups of your MySQL database if you are using Yahoo Hosting for your Practical Data My Account, Reviews or other store functionality. There is no way to schedule MySQL database backups in the Web Hosting Control Panel, so they must be run manually.

1) Log-in to your Web Hosting Control Panel

2) Navigate to Create and Update --> Other Site Building Tools --> MySQL Database

3) Click the Backup Database link

4) Proceed to choose the directory where you would like the backup file to be stored and continue as instructed

The Backup process may take 5 - 10 minutes to complete.
