LOAD DATA FROM MASTER

Hi,

  I am doing a LOAD DATA FROM MASTER, and I get:

ERROR 1189: Net error reading from master

I had this problem before, and i remember I remove the ibdata1 file, restarted and then it worked.

I am NOT using Innodb tables anywhere and I think this is why my LOAD DATA FROM MASTER is failing (because of the ibdata1).

I removed the ibdata1 file from the master and now when I do LOAD... I get:

ERROR 1188: Error from master: 'Can't open file: 'admins.InnoDB'. (errno: 1)'

How do I fix these errors?

I found out one of my DBs I was not using was using InnoDB.  I removed this and now I am not getting the error.  I am not sure if this is what is causing the first error though???

If someone can shed some light on the problem then I will still be offering the points.

"LOAD DATA FROM MASTER" only works with MyISAM tables.

So, yes, if one of your table is non MyISAM (in this case innoDB), it won't work :

Yes, I understand that, but is that what the error means?  And if so... how do I get mysql to stop from creating ibdata1?

Yes. The error means that it's trying to apply a process to an unsupported type of table.

you can do a :
drop table ibdata1;

(under mysql).

It might give you an error because you already deleted the file by hand, but it should work.

i don't think ibdata1 is a table.  /var/lib/mysql/ibdata1.  It doesn't belong to any database, so hence you cannot drop it as a table.

Also, even though i deleted the ibdata1 by hand, it comes back everytime I restart the MySQL process.

Sorry. My mistake. Yes. It's a description file for all innoDB tables.

Disable innoDB completely by adding the following line to your server's my.cnf :

skip-innodb

If you don't know where your my.cnf is located, or want to create one if none exists, do :

mysqld --help

You will find something like :

Default options are read from the following files in the given order:
/etc/my.cnf /var/lib/mysql/my.cnf ~/.my.cnf

Then, delete the ibdata1 file, and restart your server. With a bit of luck, it should not re-appear.
