That's ok if you're trying to dump a MySQL database. But better to use
something like mysqldump or one of the hotbackup tools (like
xtrabackup). Even better, get a webhost that doesn't make you jump
through hoops to get a backup of your own DB!!!

Anyway, that's all irrelevant. This thread has nothing to do with DB backups.

Please read http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/trunk/mwdumper/README
