Hi all,

Simply put, I have created a database (myDB) in MySql and now it has some tables and some info in it. I want to send it to a client of mine (who already have MySql db but not myDB) and he will be able to use those tables and the information. He is not a computer savvy and I want to guide him with minimal technicality.

Question: How can I 'export' my database and send it to him and how can he 'import' it and use it?

Note:

(1) I have read about mysqldump - but it's a utility command line (not good - client not comp savy) I read about replication (same thing)

(2) In MS access I used to send the file and that's it... I take it its more complicated with MySql.

Any thoughts?
Thanks

You should be able to use the MySQL Administrator to 'backup' the DB and then have your client 'restore' the DB. If the DB is very large this may take some time.
