Hello,

The answer to this must be easy, but Im not having any luck finding it.

I need to extract a database from MySQL 5.0 using mysqldump command - then laod this dump into  MySQL 3.2.3.

The problem is I get some commands at the top of the dump which MySQL3 cannot understand. These are somrthing like:


/*!40101 SET @OLD_CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT=@@CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT */;
/*!40101 SET @OLD_CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS=@@CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS */;
/*!40101 SET @OLD_COLLATION_CONNECTION=@@COLLATION_CONNECTION */;
/*!40101 SET NAMES utf8 */;
/*!40103 SET @OLD_TIME_ZONE=@@TIME_ZONE */;
/*!40103 SET TIME_ZONE='+00:00' */;
/*!40014 SET @OLD_UNIQUE_CHECKS=@@UNIQUE_CHECKS, UNIQUE_CHECKS=0 */;
/*!40014 SET @OLD_FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=@@FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS, FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0 */;
/*!40101 SET @OLD_SQL_MODE=@@SQL_MODE, SQL_MODE='NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO' */;
/*!40111 SET @OLD_SQL_NOTES=@@SQL_NOTES, SQL_NOTES=0 */;



I need to find a option to use which will stop mysqldump from creating this data.

So far I have tried:

--skip-opt
--skip-comments
--compatible=mysql323
--skip-triggers

Although the above does reduce some extra info I dont need, it does not remove the section I mentioned above.


Any ideas on how to do a very absoluted basic dump?

I only need to DROP IF EXISTS/CREATE/INSERT

Thanks

Forget it..... I have the answer.

mysqldump -uroot --compact --compatible=mysql323 --add-drop-table mydb > dump.sql

The order is important as is the --compact flag!!
