Oh believe me, it does corrupt the database. I used to switch servers a lot from time to time long time ago and have been doing the backup and restore process many times. I've always tried to backup a database via cPanel and it wasn't doing any good. Try to backup a huge (or even a small) database using cPanel and see for yourself. You'll see what I mean. It doesn't backup the whole database of a forum, it stops at the end with lots of missing tables. Don't ask me why it corrupts the database, I'm not the one who created cPanel. My usual solution for moving hosts/servers or any other reason is by using the BigDump script or sometimes SSH, depends whether I'm running a huge database or not.
