Hello. I am new to DH. I was till now on krify.com hosting. They had provided me with helm control panel. i searched everywhere and i think i dont have shell access.
Now my database (phpbb) is very large. When i downloaded it in gzip, it was 104MB. But when i opened it, it gave out an error message saying: “archive damaged”. My friends told me that the file might be more than 104MB and the complete file had not been backed up.
Now i want to get the complete back up of my database from old server and get it restored here on DH server. Regarding restoring, i know about BIG DUMP.
But what about taking back up from old server?
I dont have shell access. Can i use any php scripts to make a back up to ftp area and then take the back up.
please guide me.
