We are using phpMyAdmin 2.6.4-pl1 and when we go to export our database to a compressed file, it produces a zero byte file.

We can export to screen just fine.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Do you get an error on the screen?

I suspect that there is an error which is corrupting the download.

If you have error logging enabled, check your error log.

If you DON'T have it enabled, enable it, at least temporarily.

Alternatively, you can add

error_reporting(E_ALL); to the main script.

may be there is no compression support with php.
do phpinfo() and see if there is a support for compression tar, zip etc.

another thing it is not a javascript prob so post it in php section. u will get better responses

Thanks for the suggestions. Before I did anything to troubleshoot it started working again. Very strange.

Thanks again
