I always backup MySql databases using phpMydmin using built-in export feature in gzip mode. Now my database size has been increased to over 2500MB and phpMyAdmin is unable to export in gzip or zip format. However I am able to download a .sql file without compression but it is taking too long to download and some times if the internet connection is interrupted I had to start the down load once again right from the beginning. Is there any way to make phpMyAdmin to export larger databases in gzip or zip format with out using mysqldump command.
