Backup phpmyadmin inconsistent advice codex (3 posts)

    Today I found an inconsistency in the codex, about backing up up your database using Phpmyadmin.

    On
    http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Backups#Accessing_phpMyAdmin
    it is mentioned that you have to "3 Check the "Complete inserts" box."
    In the picture below the other checkbox "Use hexadecimal for binary fields" is also checked.

    However if you go to:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Backing_Up_Your_Database
    it is mentioned
    7. The DATA section
    Leave the boxes inside this section unticked, but make sure to keep the checkbox next to the "DATA" heading checked.

    So which one is correct? I have always used the second one.

    Either way is okay actually. Complete inserts will result in a larger backup file.
