       Dumping definition and data mysql database or table mysqldump supports by executing

	      Dump all the databases. This  will  be  same  as	--databases  with  all	databases

	      Include all MySQL specific create options.

	      Output debug log. Often this is 'd:t:o,filename`.

	      Directory where character sets are

	      Display this help message and exit.

	      To dump several databases. Note the difference in usage; In this case no tables are
	      given. All name arguments are regarded as databasenames.

	      Use complete insert statements.

	      Use compression in server/client protocol.

	      Set the default character set

	      Allows utilization of the new, much faster INSERT syntax.

	      Add a 'drop table' before each create.

	      Add locks around insert statements.

	      Allow creation of column names that are keywords.

	      Insert rows with INSERT DELAYED.

	      Flush logs file in server before starting dump.

	      Continue even if we get an sql-error.

	      Connect to host.

	      Lock all tables for read.

	      will not be put in the output. The above line will be added otherwise,  if  --data-
	      bases or --all-databases option was given.

	      Don't write table creation info.

	      No row information.

       -O|--set-variable var=option
	      give a variable a value.	--help lists variables

       --opt  Same as  --add-drop-table --add-locks --all --extended-insert --quick --lock-tables

	      Password to use when connecting to server.  If password is not given it's solicited
	      on the tty.

	      Port number to use for connection.

	      Don't buffer query, dump directly to stdout.

	      Quote table and column names with `

	      Socket file to use for connection.

	      Overrides option --databases(-B).

	      Creates tab separated textfile for each table to given path. (creates .sql and .txt
	      files).	NOTE:  This  only  works  if  mysqldump is run on the same machine as the
	      mysqld daemon.

	      User for login if not current user.

	      Print info about the various stages.

	      Output version information and exit.

	      dump only selected records; QUOTES mandatory!

	      Insert rows with the INSERT DELAYED command.

	      Use the new multiline INSERT syntax. (Gives more compact and faster inserts  state-





	      These  options  are used with the -T option and have the same meaning as the corre-
	      sponding clauses for LOAD DATA INFILE. See Mysql	manual	section  7.23  LOAD  DATA
	      INFILE Syntax.

	      Verbose mode. Print out more information on what the program does.

	      Print version information and exit.

       -O net_buffer_length=#, where # < 16M
	      When  creating  multi-row-insert	statements  (as  with option --extended-insert or
	      --opt ), mysqldump will create rows up to net_buffer_length length. If you increase
	      this  variable,  you should also ensure that the max_allowed_packet variable in the
	      MySQL server is bigger than the net_buffer_length.

       The most normal use of mysqldump is probably for making a backup of whole  databases.  See
       Mysql Manual section 21.2 Database Backups.

       mysqldump  --opt database > backup-file.sql

       You can read this back into MySQL with:

       mysql  database < backup-file.sql


       mysql  -e 'source /patch-to-backup/backup-file.sql' database

       However,  it's  also  very useful to populate another MySQL server with information from a

       mysqldump --opt database | mysql --host=remote-host -C database

       It is possible to dump several databases with one command:

       mysqldump --databases database1 [ database2 database3... ]  > my_databases.sql

       If all the databases are wanted, one can use:

       mysqldump --all-databases > all_databases.sql
