    I'm sorry if this has been asked. I have a hosting company who does the mysql database for me. I'm thinking of moving the existing data onto my own machine. Is there a simple way to do this or should I just write a PHP script to do it?

    thanks in advance.

    You can use mysqldump -p database > filename to extract the tables. Follow up on the new computer just running the dumpfile into the system.
