It's been a little while since I ran mysql dumper, but have done so successfully in the past many times, however when trying now something weird is happening.
I had not changed the settings (I have now after the problem reset to default to try and fix) but now when I run it I'm getting multiple files generated often 1 second after the other as can be seen in this screenshot of the files on the ftp;
I had email confirmation turned on too, and I'm pretty much getting an email sent every second as the interface refreshes.
The interface is showing something like this;
Normally, the last bit (2 seconds, 0 page refreshes) might show something like 40 seconds, 25 page refreshes as it processes bigger databases.
The version of PHP running on the server was updated a little while ago from
5.6.18. Could that have anything to do with this odd behaviour? As I said, the settings had not been changed - even so the default settings are pretty much what I had used anyway.
I have also just tried re-downloading mysqldumper from scratch and installing it. Unfortunately, nothing changed. There must be some kind of configuration issue, but I don't know where to find that out...
If i click auto detect here I get the value 120795955
