Linux MySQL

How can I make a copy of all of the databases in a MySQL  server and move them to another server?  I believe they all have different logins so looking for an easy process.

- if you have root access you can do mysql dump.
- if you have filesystem access you may stop mysql / flush tables with read lock and then copy data files.
- dump each of the db one by one!! may be a shellscript will do the job! You may directly redirect it to target db if it's accesible:
mysqldump -uUSER -pPASS --databases DB1 | mysql -uUSER -pPASS -hREMOTEHOST/IP

Hi!

The easiest way is to use mysqldump as theGhost_k8 says.
To dump all the databases you issue
mysqldump -uUSER -pPASS --all-databases > dumpfile.sql
and then issue
mysql -uUSER -pPASS < dumpfile.sql

Hope this helps.
