mysql conversion

My databases are all mysql. They are stored as databse directory, and database.frm, database.MYD, database.MYI.
I need to convert these to .sql in order to upload to another provider.
Can anybody tell me how to do it.

Alternative, is it possible to host a website that uses mysql on one server, and host the mysql database on another server. If it is, how do I do it?

RE: mysql conversion

Whether it's possible to access a mysql database from the current location from another domain, a new site, depends on whether remote access is allowed.

In short: It depends - as always :). You need to clear this question with your hoster or cloud provider.

It's simpler than it seems, though, to find out, because you know after changing host=localhost or host= or host=servername as necessary. One thing is for sure, especially if you don't host your new domain with the same hoster or within the same cloud provider, you will have a slower connection.

Typical solutions about sharing data among different office locations of the same company or different customers can differ very much and mean different best strategies from a local database everywhere over replication to a centralized data location and mixed strategies.
