for cutting and pasting that sounds fine.
tail -f /path/logfilename
is usefull for watching the log in real time

adapted from http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Backup_your_database
mysqldump -u mythtv -p --extended-insert --databases mythconverg > database.bak
that's assuming you're using the default database username and
password. Run it as your mythtv user.
