In Workbench, from the main screen, you:

1. Select Manage Import/Export

under Server Administration.

2. Select the server instance you desire

3. Select Export

In the left-side task bar, select export.

4. Select database schema

In the main task area, select the database schema you wish to export.

5. Select export type

Select "Export to self-contained file"

6. Name the file

Define the export file name

7. Select data dump options

Select what types of data to export (optional) using the checkboxes provided below the file name block.

8. Create file

Click "Start Export"

9. Upload newly created SQL file

The upload uses the "Data Import/Restore" option instead of the "Select Export" in step 3.

10. Select Input source

Select "Import from self-contained file" in the task window.

11. Find your created SQL file

Use the browse function to find your generated SQL file.

12. Import

Click "Start Import"

Do I have to do each Database Schema one-byone?

If you are retaining the structure of all databases as an exact mirror, you can simply select all of the database schemas and compact them into a single file. The only reason you should need to do individual schema exports would be in a situation where you have different domains served from different servers.

The self-contained sql file will contain all of the databases selected, all tables, and all records. This includes all views and queries that are contained within the database schema, unless you select the option to exclude data and only keep the structure.
