Hi experts,

I am trying to backup my database on my linux box, but I keep getting this error:

mysqldump: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user 'vittoriomysql'@'localhost' (using password: NO) when trying to connect

This is done in a cron job and the command I run is:

mysqldump –opt -Q -u myusername –password=mypassword arp3 > /home/vittorioftp/mysql_backup/EuroDisplay_Arp3_`date +%Y%m%d`.sql

"myusername" is a mysql user that has access to the arp3 database, but it is not a user at linux level.

What could the problem be?

Thanks.

you should not have -password=

-pmypassword

should work

alternativley you may not have permissions on localhost - have you checked this?

Above may or may not solve the problem -
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/mysqldump.html


You can login and use the grant syntax to make sure that myusername has the correct privledges

Thank Raynard7,

that was a quick reply.

I think we are getting there... Here is the error I get now:

mysqldump: Got error: 1049: Unknown database '?opt' when selecting the database

I actually don't know what the -opt -Q options do, so I could get rid of them.

I just need to create a full backup of the arp3 table and put it on that folder...

Thanks.

mysqldump -u myusername –pmypassword --tables databaseName.arp3 > /home/vittorioftp/mysql_backup/EuroDisplay_Arp3_`date +%Y%m%d`.sql

hi - above should work - provided you replace the databasename with the name of the databse.
