1.First Log into phpMyAdmin.  
2.Then click on ‘database’
3.Select the Export tab for the wanted database.  
4.The Export options will be displayed. Export will automatically create .sql file that can be re-imported into a database server.

You can do this by command line. Using SSH login to MYSQL database server  and run the below command
mysqldump -Q databasename -uusername -p > databasename.sql
