I need to backup my datas in my table. There is longtext field with a huge data in it.

I used mysqldump command to backup my table, it didn't give me correct result. I have 1000 records approx., but i got only 3 of them insert value. Is there any parameter for it.

I heard about max_allowed_packets. If this will be the solution can you write the exact solution (no suggestions please!).

The answer to this question involves what error that you are getting.

Generally speaking if mysql dump produces a sql file then you should be able to import it.  If it does not import there is generally an error at the statement it had problems with and will stop processing from that point.

If the error is that there was an SQL format error then you may need to edit the dump file, if the error was insufficient memory you would need to change the value for max_allowed_packets in the my.cnf / my.ini so something larger (it is in bytes)

Remote Server - Linux - Mysql 5.0.16
Local Server  - XP Mysql 5

mysqldump --skip-opt --add-drop-table --add-locks --create-options  --order-by-primary  -uxxxxx -pxxxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxx_cities >c:\xxx.sql

When i wrote with these attributes it gives me the correct values, i don't know why. Now it gives me each insert with new line. And it's solved. maybe mysqldump not use general syntax... Cause i suffered some other problems... I will be glad, if you advice me the way for all operating systems to backup my data.

Thanks

This depends on what tables you are using.

I've had many more problems using mysqldump than just copying my myisam data files to other systems (cross linux / windows...) but I have not been able to get this to work with innodb.
