Hi

At night i have a script that is run by cron to backup a mysql database.

The script is:



#!/bin/bash
echo "Database Replication"
echo "Exporting Database"
mysqldump -u****** -p***** databasename > /backups/dumps/databasename.$(date +%Y).$(date +%m).$(date +%d).sql
echo "Database Exported"
echo "Compressing Database"
tar -cvzf /backups/databasename.$(date +%Y).$(date +%m).$(date +%d).tgz /backups/dumps/databasename.$(date +%Y).$(date +%m).$(date +%d).sql
echo "Copy file to Windows Server"
cp /backups/databasename.$(date +%Y).$(date +%m).$(date +%d).tgz /mnt/win/
echo "Databases Compressed and moved"
echo "Finished"



If i try and restore the backup to a test database on the same server i get the following error

ERROR 1064 (42000) at line 57040868: You have an error the manual that
corresponds to your MySQL server versio use near 'NULL,'0002132153','0002132153-3','2006-11-0     523,NULL,NUL' at line 1


If i do a manual dump and then restore it works without a hitch.

Help please.

HI!

Did the cron-backup/server report any errors at the time when the backup was taken ?

no, it seems to run fine and create all necessary files.

Hi!

And you are moving data from Linux to Windows  or different versions of MySQL ?

mysql -u***** -p databasename < /backups/dumps/databasebackupname.sql

Hi!

Can you post the lines around the line that has this data (5 lines before and after) from the dump.
'NULL,'0002132153','0002132153-3','2006-11-0     523,NULL,NUL' at line 1

This seems to be some data issue that the parser doesn't know how to deal with.

what does "at line 57040868" mean

Hi!

That is the line of the code of MySQL for bug purposes i think.
You should look at the values that either are in line 1 of your dump file or somewhere near.

I found the issue.

The script was running over the top of itself from another source and corrupting the backup files.
