I'm trying to move a WP site to a new hosting account. I have a backup of the sql database that is 1.44 GB. In the Cpanel my hosting company has a 50 mg limit. Can I use BackupBuddy to get around this problem and migrated to the new hosting account?

Hi Dave,

Why are you using cpanel to import a database anyways? Is it an upload limit? Can use FTP to upload the sql file instead of importing in cpanel.

That's a very huge database, probably shouldn't be that large unless your site is some mega huge crazy large site.
