I have a Linux-based MySQL database that I need to backup.  I know NOTHING about Linux but need to make a quick backup of a database.  My only accessibility to the database is through Windows.

Without having to buy some third-party software do I have options for being able to authenticate and back a database up?

Worst case scenario, I can connect through VB.NET...but that is not preferable.

Even if you don't know linux, I think if you followed this one liner, you'd be ok

Also, you could install phpadmin on your linux box and go the gui way:

I copied the exe & pdb files to the server.  Having to run it remotely.  Used the command line and it worked like a charm.
