for cutting and pasting that sounds fine.

and ...

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
Password: mythtv

that's assuming you're using the default database username and
password.  Run it as your mythtv user.
