MOVE/COPY entire MySQL database

Is there a way to move or copy an entire database, rather than just a table?
This would be across Cpanel hosting accounts, i have root access and MySQL access enabled.
I have myphpadmin and phpflashmyadmin

In myphpadmin, there's a database copy (structure+data) but i don't see how to copy it to another account.
For instance in the text field entry for    Copy database to:
i would want to put     newusername_dbname
but i get access denied.  So that means i need to login somehow as root.
I can login as root in phpflashmyadmin(there's no copy database option), but i don't know how to login as root  in phpmyadmin  since it's launched from a given cpanel hosting account

i may just need to export and  then import in the new account.
just seeing if there's a shortcut

thanks

You can use mysqldump from the command line

mysqldump -u username -ppassword -h source_server_ip   database_name  >   outputfile.sql

That will dump the database to a file

then
create the database in the mysql target server  

mysql -u username -ppassword -h target_server_ip  database_name <   outputfile.sql

i understand that that involves the strategy of exporting,  i was hoping there was a
copy-database    strategy available.

The mysqldump was is essentially making a backup of the database then restoring it to another server.
It's the way I prefer to do it as I've never lost any data doing it that way.
