My phpmyadmin doesn't work. I see only white blank page when I open it (it has some issue),

However, I'd like to export my project database manually to another computer.

I saw all my databases inside /var/lib/mysql and when i run

mysqldump -u username -p databasename > backup.sql

using mysqldump for backing-up, it freezes up and does nothing

Is there any another way by which I can export my database?

I just wanted to say use mysqldump – Marcel May 19 '11 at 11:05
Achu, have you tried looking at mysql -u username -p -e 'show processlist' ? It may offer a clue as to what mysqldump is waiting for. Could be a table lock. – SpamapS Oct 31 '11 at 7:53

It freezes because its creating the sql file. Just wait until it finishes. – Rael Gugelmin Cunha Feb 10 at 10:38

I have always used mysqldump -u username -p databasename > backup.sql with no issues.
