I have a MYSQL database - 5.9 gigs.
I did a mysqldump > gizip and zipped it up to 2.7 gigs (backup)
I cannot see it with my FTP client to download it.

Suggestions? How do I get the file from my server to my home to burn it on CD?

How did you do the mysqldump to begin with?

The command I used was:

mysqldump --quick databasename --password=###### | gzip > zip.gz

The zip file exists on my server. I can see it with ls -l

But I can't download it!

I meant, how are you logged into the server to be able to use mysqldump in the first place? You can probably use the same method to move the file to your Windows system.

Check out WinSCP.

I was using Putty.exe, I believe this is called SSH.

I don't know how I would use this to download it though. I will check out WinSCP

I used split, then downloaded the individual files, and copy /b to put it back together

WinSCP will allow you to log in to your server through SSH and graphically download files there much like an FTP client.
