Hello.  I recently took over a Q2A instance and I want to back up the data into a SQL database file.  Can someone please help guide me on how to do this?

Note: I did see https://www.question2answer.org/qa/18122/can-someone-guide-how-make-q2a-database-backup-using-myadmin, but it uses phpmyadmin, which is not being used to my knowledge.

Thank you.
