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-COPY-ID(1)						      General Commands Manual						    SSH-COPY-ID(1)

ssh-copy-id - install your public key in a remote machine's authorized_keys SYNOPSIS
ssh-copy-id [-i [identity_file]] [user@]machine DESCRIPTION
ssh-copy-id is a script that uses ssh to log into a remote machine and append the indicated identity file to that machine's ~/.ssh/autho- rized_keys file. If the -i option is given then the identity file (defaults to ~/.ssh/ is used, regardless of whether there are any keys in your ssh-agent. Otherwise, if this: ssh-add -L provides any output, it uses that in preference to the identity file. If the -i option is used, or the ssh-add produced no output, then it uses the contents of the identity file. Once it has one or more fin- gerprints (by whatever means) it uses ssh to append them to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on the remote machine (creating the file, and directory, if necessary.) NOTES
This program does not modify the permissions of any pre-existing files or directories. Therefore, if the remote sshd has StrictModes set in its configuration, then the user's home, ~/.ssh folder, and ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file may need to have group writability disabled manu- ally, e.g. via chmod go-w ~ ~/.ssh ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on the remote machine.
