Tutorial :mysql dump tables only



Question:

In my database I have some tables and views. How can I export all the tables (and not the views) from my database from command line?


Solution:1

You can use mysqldump with the option --ignore-table to exclude the views individually. Or use mysqldump and remove the views with an application/manually. grep might be an option:

grep -v "CREATE VIEW" db.dump > db-without-views.dump  


Solution:2

The current implementation mysqldump won't create dumps without views -- and furthermore, (last time I checked) views are actually created twice -- once as a table, then the table is dropped and replaced with a view. So you can't just filter out the "CREATE VIEW" command, unless that behavior has been modified.

However, mysqldump will take a list of tables as parameters following the database name. Something like this:

mysqldump -ujoe -pmysecret joesdb posts tags comments users  


Solution:3

To ignore a single view from your DB for Dump:

mysqldump -uusrname -ppwd -h hostname --ignore-table=db.view_name db > db.sql

To ignore multiple view from your Db for Dump:

mysqldump -uusrname -ppwd -h hostname --ignore-table=db.view1 --ignore-table=db.view2 db > db.sql

NOTE: to ignore multiple views for dump use --ignore-table option multiple times.


Solution:4

Backuping a single table from a database

mysqldump -uUSERNAME -pPASWORD DATABASE TABLE_NAME --host=HOST_NAME > c:\TABLE_NAME.sql  

Restoring a single table from a database dump

mysql -uUSERNAME -pPASSWORD DATABASE --host=HOST_NAME < c:\TABLE_NAME.sql  


Solution:5

Updated @ladieu's script:

  • Shell arguments are properly escaped permitting passwords with shell caracters
  • Using PDO instead of mysql specific functions (sometime an IP seems to be resolved against DNS with the mysql_* functions and thus trigger an error)
  • Removed assumption that the script is used locally (added host parameter)
  • Using the "-r" options to avoid encoding issues
  • name the output file .sql
  • rearranged parameters so it does fit in "I want to connect to with user identified by and dump database>
<?php    if (is_array($argv) && count($argv)>3) {      $host=($argv[1]);      $user=($argv[2]);      $password=($argv[3]);      $database=($argv[4]);    }  else {      echo "Usage php mysqdump.php <host> <user> <password> <database>\n";      exit;  }    echo 'connecting to'.$host;    $pdo=new PDO("mysql:host=$host;dbname=$database",$user,$password);    //$link = mysql_connect($host, $user, $password);    //$source = mysql_select_db($database, $link);  $sql = "SHOW FULL TABLES IN `$database` WHERE TABLE_TYPE LIKE 'VIEW';";  $result = $pdo->query($sql);  $views=array();  while ($row = $result->fetch()) {     $views[]="--ignore-table={$database}.".$row[0];  }  //no views or triggers please  $host=escapeshellarg($host);  $user=escapeshellarg($user);  $password=escapeshellarg($password);  $database=escapeshellarg($database);  echo passthru("mysqldump -h $host -u $user --password=\"$password\" $database --skip-triggers ".implode(" ",$views)." -r $database.sql");  

Enjoy !

Usage

php mysqldump.php mydatabase myusername mypassword > myoutputfile.sql  

This is a pretty old script of mine. Someone could easily adapt this to use PDO if you do not have access to the mysql functions.

<?php    if (is_array($argv) && count($argv)>3) {      $database=$argv[1];      $user=$argv[2];      $password=$argv[3];  }  else {      echo "Usage php mysqdump.php <database> <user> <password>\n";      exit;  }    $link = mysql_connect('localhost', $user, $password);      if (!$link) {      die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());  }    $source = mysql_select_db('$database', $link);  $sql = "SHOW FULL TABLES IN `$database` WHERE TABLE_TYPE LIKE 'VIEW';";  $result = mysql_query($sql);  $views=array();  while ($row = mysql_fetch_row($result)) {     $views[]="--ignore-table={$database}.".$row[0];  }  //no views or triggers please  echo passthru("mysqldump -u root --password=\"$password\" $database --skip-triggers ".implode(" ",$views));    ?>  


Solution:7

Try the following:

mysqldump -h drupdbsvr  -u elt_drupal_dba -pdrupdev-654! clms_admin views_display views_view view_argument view_exposed_filter view_filter view_sort view_tablefield view_view > /opt/dbdump/clms_admin_view.sql  

Where the syntax is:-

mysqldump -h hostname -u database_user_name database_password database_name table_name1 table_name2 > path/sql_file.sql
