Let mysqldump help you!

I used to dump mysql data using PHPMyAdmin. People should get kicked in the nuts for doing that.

Dumping a (remote) database:

mysqldump -uroot -proot –host=mysql.openminds.be my_database > Desktop/dump.sql

Restoring a database:

mysql -uroot -proot my_database < Desktop/dump.sql

Disclaimer: I know that it’s stupid to set the password in the command, but this is just for the example. /cc @adeepersilence
