My Webhost has disappeared, possibly because the company has gone out of business. I no longer have access to cloud-based backups which my host created on a daily basis, however I still have access to phpMyAdmin (version 3.5.4).

Within phpMyAdmin, the "Export" tab is missing. I also can't create and copy a database within the "Operations" tab. Is there an alternative way I can do a database dump of all the DBs on the server, e.g. from the SQL tab?


If you have the FILE privilege you can, table by table, use SELECT ... INTO OUTFILE queries and download your data from those.
