I am learning from a tutorial which has different usernames, different database-names,  same localhost.  Plus I think I did this with another tutorial.

input comes from different (small) .sql files where I copy pasted into windows7 mysql-workbench (lastest 6). Difficult to find all the tutorial code .sql files (but I tested with php and mysql is working)


Can I create one export file where if I lose the data I import restore from one sql file.
I do not want to modify php of tutorial to only have (one username)/ (one dbname)

You can export your users' table (mysql/users). Then, on reinstall/move you just import that table.

If you want to save all the tables you are currently working with, Do this from within workbench.

1. Click on "DATA EXPORT" from the Navigator tab.
2. Select all the tables you want to save. (probably all of them).
3. Click on "Export to self-contained file" and then "Start Export".

There is a users table, inside the mysql database.

PS: if you don't want to be constrained by Workbench's capabilities, you can use the standard built-in mysqldump: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysqldump.html
