Database Dump

  • Posted April 10, 2014

I’m trying to dump my SQL datbase, and I keep getting the following error:

mysqldump: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES) when trying to connect

I’m using the following command to do this: root@applewildschool:~# mysqldump -u root -p applewild > applewild.sql

What am I doing wrong?

i am still getting the similar error even after removing the space after -p

You can take a look at the file’s contents by running <pre>less applewild.sql</pre>

Thanks for your response! It looks like it may have worked. <br> <br>But how will I know if the file is correct?

remove the space between -p applewild and try again.
