I am using Doctrine as my ORM and it only reads XML/YMAL files and I was given a schema in form of MySQL script. Is their anyway to dump a MySQL db to a ymal file?

use sqlyog and connect to your database, it has a built in ability to export any table as xml or csv.

Its free to use, just click downloads

I need something that would be able to backup the entire database, not just a single table at a time
