Tried downloading my database, it creeps past 1 KB downloaded, and a few minutes later it's only at 20KB...finally a few minutes later it jumps to 10 MB and progresses quickly until 18.6 MB, slowing down and a couple minutes later the download is complete at 18.7 MB.
My question: why is it slow, then quick, then slow again?

Hi semsemx1,

This is due to the strange method that phpMyAdmin uses to generate the export file. As you download the phpMyAdmin export file, phpMyAdmin is still trying to generate the file as you download it. Near the start of the download, phpMyAdmin is still beginning to generate the file, which is why less is downloaded at this time. In the past few months, we have made some changes to phpMyAdmin and our MySQL server itself and to help boost speeds, but I'm afraid there is not much more we can do to speed up the download.

Thank you,
