Database backup format question

  • 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.

    Thank you so much. I am moving a blog to a new host and I am skurred.
