You can do it with an external php file in root....

        ini_set('display_errors', '1');

        // Load Up Magento Core
        define('MAGENTO', realpath('/'));

        require_once(MAGENTO . 'app/Mage.php');

        $app = Mage::app();

        $categories = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')
         ->addAttributeToFilter('is_anchor', 0)
         ->addAttributeToFilter('entity_id', array("gt" => 1))

        foreach($categories as $category) {

         echo $category->getId() . "\t" . $category->getName() . "\n";
