I want to make a copy of my current Joomla data base, but I am not sure how to do it. I am using Joomla 2.5. Can anyone please help me do this?

You can copy the database on the same MySQL Server

using phpMyAdmin, click on the database listed, and then from the right panel click the Operations tab and you will find a section for copying the database. Or you can go to the tab export instead to export the database to another server.

Another option would be setting a fresh copy of joomla 2.5 on the server
