Try to do it in batches instead of one big package. The size of your database makes your script probably time-out.

Thanks for your sharing, i am very confused that why do you get heave mysql database, 2GB is very huge, you could compress it.

hi,
IIRC, the account must have enough space on it, to create the backup, on it.If the account has plenty of space, did you leave it enough time to finish?While the backup is running, those 13 k files are normal. On that test you did on another account, start the backup and then check that account, you'll find those same size files.

A common feature in cPanel. You should think of other backup strategies like rsync which is incremental and not such a huge resource hog.

As the previous post said do it in batches instead of doing it in whole sum
