I am backing up my database using mysqldump as I read here: http://www.tizag.com/mysqlTutorial/mysqlbackup.php
It gives me some sort of command(Linux I think):
mysqldump --tab=/path/to/some/dir --opt db_name
But it doesn't explain what I do with that command or how I send it to the database so it can backup. It says I need to run SSH to your web server. What does this mean and how can I do that?
EDIT: *The main reason I am doing this is so I can have the DB automatically backup every week using a cronjob. Using PhpmyADmin or any tool that I need to access manually to backup the DB is not a solution I am looking for.*
