Admirer Database Manager Warning

I mentioned a problem I struck with this little script in another post, but  being  a long post some people may miss it.

Admirer is a free and tiny script that runs on your VPS server. It's like phpMyAdmin which is usually offered on Shared servers,  but not on servers like Digital Ocean.

Admirer seems to have a download limit which is about equal the number of fields in a Cheetah database. However, if you add a few 3rd Party modules and try to download  or export the database, it may be truncated.

To avoid this problem, download or export your database as a GZip  file and all will be okay. Uploading a GZip file is easy because Admirer automatically unzips it for you.

The Gzip function is available as an option when you click Export.
