How do we include remote mysqldump?

Such as the mysql bin dir on the remote host?

1 Answer

you need to ssh into the box and then ask for the dump.

ssh -f -L3310:localhost:3306 user@remote.server -N
mysqldump -P 3310 -h 127.0.0.1 -u mysql_user -p database_name table_name

I understand the CLI access, and thank you for the great example; but I was wondering about the GUI...

What program are you using?

The course I was doing was using MySQL Workbench. I suppose writing bash scripts or PHP scripts would work just as well with a cron job.

Here is the documentation from the mysql site about export and import.

You will also need to add the remote connection in the startup screen if you don't have that set up.
