    I did the backup database using the Codex instructions and it saved the file as a .txt file?

    Am I doing something wrong or is this how it should be?

    Thanks for any help.

    A MySQL backup or "dump" file is just a text file, and though it will typically have a .sql extension, it doesn't look like you've done anything wrong from here.
