Backing Up Your CPV Lab Pro Database Manually

  • In order to manually backup your CPV Lab Pro Datbase, you can use phpMyAdmin

  • Some users may experience issues with the Backup Database feature on the Settings Page within CPV Lab Pro.

    • The reason for this is generally caused by limited amounts of memory being assigned to handle PHP on the server. In most cases this can be adjusted by the web host fairly easily.
    • However, depending on the size of your database, this can be a very large file and take some time.
  • In this case, or if your web host won’t allow you to increase the amount of memory assigned to PHP, you can still back up your CPV Lab Pro data quickly and easily directly within phpMyAdmin.
