Hello:
I just need to take a one time Full bakcup of a MySQL database. I dont know PHP and Linux or all the there LAMP stack utilities.
I am a SQL server DBA and just needs to ensure I back up a small database in MySQL workbench.

Is there any gui inteface to take that small backup?
I looked up online and many suggestions go to the route of PHP and other command line ways, but I am looking for a gui from the Workbench, something like r-click , tasks, bakcup (like in SSMS)

Thank you.

from shell:
mysqldump -u user -p -A > server_dump.sql

to restore:
mysql -u user -p -A < server_dump.sql

For doing the backup in workbench:

thank you,
I tried the workbench link and done the export.
after it finished I opened the file location and I see all the backed up "MySQL" tables in a (.sql) format! When I double click on them, SQLserver opens with the query window of that backup. does that make sense?! They should really open with Mysql.




thanks.

.sql can be opened by either

You likely have the default application for .sql set to SQLserver.

You can import by selecting the 'Import from Disk' tab in the data dump section of workbench.
