I want to create a backup of my database using the phpmyadmin export function. the database can't have any down time so I need to know if running a database export will take the database down?
I've looked on-line but all I get is instructions on how to export. No one tells you if it will be down whilst it does its task. I just need a strait answer so I can Export or organise a safe down time to export.
Any help is really appreciated, Thanks.
