I was exporting the DB without adding a couple of arguments :
mysqldump –opt -Q -uUSERNAME -p DATABASENAME > /PATH/TO/DUMP.SQL
Simple as that. Grrrr its always something simple!
Looks like i can move the server to the new faster machine at last. Should improve the load when busy. :weee:
its always something small and annoying – well done SdZ for finding it 🙂
