The export feature that I am referring to is specifically pointed at phpmyadmin. In a hosted environment, such as in your scenario, it is a bit more difficult to get into this module that’s sitting on top of your LAMP stack and right there on top is the DreamFactory module.
So, if you look at my case - running locally on windows. I can easily go to launch phpmyadmin from the application manager (is there no option to launch phpmyadmin from there when using on AWS?) and export the entire dreamfactory database - which is essentially doing a mysql dump of the DF db as it contains the schema and data within your entire DSP.
The export feature within the packages tab is for individual apps to be exported.
Here is an example of how I recently used it:
I wanted to take an app named “myApp” from my hosted edition of my DSP and import it into my local version hosted on my wamp stack. So, I proceeded to go to this packages tab on my hosted edition - and from there - clicked the schema + service that was associated with the app and also “included the application’s files.”
Finally, I hit ‘export app’ - and a (.dfpkg) file was downloaded to my machine. I then imported this app successfully to my wamp version of DreamFactory.
Thanks man, hope this helps a bit
