Usually you run mysqldump to create database copy:
$ mysqldump -u user -p db-name > db-name.out
Copy db-name.out file using sftp/ssh to remote MySQL server:
$ scp db-name.out firstname.lastname@example.org:/backup
Restore database at remote server (login over ssh):
$ mysql -u user -p db-name < db-name.out
How do I copy a MySQL database from one computer/server to another?
Short answer is you can copy database from one computer/server to another using ssh or mysql client.
You can run all the above 3 commands in one pass using mysqldump and mysql commands (insecure method, use only if you are using VPN or trust your network):
$ mysqldump db-name | mysql -h remote.box.com db-name
Use ssh if you don't have direct access to remote mysql server (secure method):
$ mysqldump db-name | ssh email@example.com mysql db-name
You can just copy table called foo to remote database (and remote mysql server remote.box.com) called bar using same syntax:
$ mysqldump db-name foo | ssh firstname.lastname@example.org mysql bar
