ok I have phptriad.
and I need to make a dump file of my mysql database so I can connect to it via php.
I've tried a million different ways, and nothing seems to work.
This is what I last tried.
mysql> mysqldump -u root -p --databases mycustomballs > backup.sql;
now, it says I have a syntax error and thats it, no specification or anything like that.
and also when i do:
$connection = mysql_connect("localhost","username","password"); // is that the username and password to the database?
Thanks for the help,
You down with OOP? Yeah you know me!

Two things... there shouldn't be a space between -u and root.
If you are in windows do the following.
mysqldump is standalone application
Copy the path to your MySQL bin folder.
Open a command prompt
Paste your path and type mysqldump -uroot -p mycustomballs >backup.sql
Enter your password
