Trying to export a database but getting the error “No web page was found for the web address: “https://server.domain.com:8443/domains/databases/phpMyAdmin/export.php”
Given that error message, you’d be excused for thinking that the file export.php was missing or your pypMyAdmin installation was messed up – but you’d be wrong!
This error is not intuitive, the file export.php is actually there, the problem is this.
- Your database is on the large side
- Your php memory limit is set too low
To fix, simply increase your memory_limit as follows:
# vi /etc/php.ini
Find the line that says “memory limit = (some)mb”
Change the value to something considerably bigger, usually 512mb will do the trick.
memory_limit = 128M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume
You will now be able to export your mysql database without further ado.
