Different size of database backup


#1

Hi!

When i make a db backup with the shell:

mysqldump --opt -uusername -ppassword -hyourMySQLHostname dbname > output.sql

I get one output.sql file of 25 Megas

But if i make the same backup with phpmyadmin, then I get a file of 55 Megas.

Why?
What’s wrong?

I made the 2 backups with this instructions:
