    You can backup your database with mysqldump command. You should find detailed instructions on the mysql homepage or when you google the ommand.

    This will backup the ispconfig database from command line and place it in the tmp directory:

    mysqldump dbispconfig -u {MYSQLUSER} -p {MYSQLPASSWORD} > /tmp/dbispconfig.sql

    replace {MYSQLUSER} with username and {MYSQLPASSWORD} with password.
