Mysqldump for all except one table


I am using mysqldump --opt -u username -p databasename table1 table2 table3 ... to create a dumo of my database for specific tables.

However, now, I want to take backup of whole database (55+ tables), except 1

what is the optimal way to issue the mysqldump without listing 54 table names (excluding one table in the database)

You can use the "--ignore-table=name" switch in your mysqldump statement.

FYI - To specify more than one table to ignore, use the directive multiple times, once for each table. Each table must be specified with both database and table names, e.g. --ignore-table=database.table
