Question Escape Space in a ssh command

The following statement does work. But the second command does not work as expected.

ssh root@ \\"mysqldump -h localhost -u root -pPassWord dbName -d | gzip -cf\\" | gunzip -c > database1.sql 

ssh root@ \\"mysqlbinlog /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin.* --start-datetime=\\"`date -d"1 day ago" +'%Y-%m-%d 00:00:00'`\\" --stop-datetime=\\"`date +'%Y-%m-%d 00:00:00'`\\" > tos1.txt

Incorrect date and time argument: 2009-11-06


update: The problem was solved by escaping the space in the date command.

SSH-KEYSIGN(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					    SSH-KEYSIGN(8)

ssh-keysign -- ssh helper program for host-based authentication SYNOPSIS
ssh-keysign DESCRIPTION
ssh-keysign is used by ssh(1) to access the local host keys and generate the digital signature required during host-based authentication with SSH protocol version 2. ssh-keysign is disabled by default and can only be enabled in the global client configuration file /etc/ssh/ssh_config by setting EnableSSHKeysign to ``yes''. ssh-keysign is not intended to be invoked by the user, but from ssh(1). See ssh(1) and sshd(8) for more information about host-based authen- tication. FILES
/etc/ssh/ssh_config Controls whether ssh-keysign is enabled. /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key These files contain the private parts of the host keys used to generate the digital signature. They should be owned by root, read- able only by root, and not accessible to others. Since they are readable only by root, ssh-keysign must be set-uid root if host- based authentication is used. /etc/ssh/ /etc/ssh/ /etc/ssh/ If these files exist they are assumed to contain public certificate information corresponding with the private keys above. SEE ALSO
ssh(1), ssh-keygen(1), ssh_config(5), sshd(8) HISTORY
ssh-keysign first appeared in OpenBSD 3.2. AUTHORS
