I have an SMF forum that I like to do a weekly or so database backup on. I used to backup the database using the link found on the forum itself, but a few weeks ago I realized that everything from the previous month had been corrupted since my forum database was getting pretty large. So, I exported the database from phpMyAdmin.
On last week's export, my database text file was 63.1mb.
I downloaded it again just now and it is 46.9mb, but my forum only gained content in that time.
How can I backup my database so that I don't lose any content?
