Question

How I duplicate a database in my linux?

I have ubuntu 14 (nginx) and I’m ran that command to duplicate/export my database:

mysqldump -u[user] -h[localhost] -p[pwd] database1 > /home/database1.sql

And after I ran to import:

mysql -u[user] -h[localhost] -p[pwd] database2 < /home/database1.sql

And I get that message:

ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘mysql neurocriativi > /home/neurocriativi.sql’ at line 1

Hi Nayara,

When dumping your database1 in database1.sql file, you should see a line saying : USE database1 If you want to restore this dump in database2, then you may just comment the line showing the database to use and relaunch your mysql import command again. Then it should work ^^

Hope this helps
