Command is wrong... should be:

    mysqldump -u user -p password database_name > outfile.sql

That might be the easiest, but all I get is an empty file.

I've tried many different variations of the syntax using exec(), but
nothing produces any subsistent output. What am I doing wrong?

Have you checked the return code of running exec? It may be the mysqldump program isn't in your path.

As for accessing a command line, I am still in the dark as to how to do that.

In windows you can do Start -> Run -> cmd.exe to load the command prompt terminal. You could probably put the above mysqldump command directly into the run prompt, but I don't know what it's default path is... but a small tweak might be:

    C:\PATH\TO\mysqlump -u user -p password database_name > C:\outfile.sql
