MySQL quick backup

This trick will show you how to quickly perform a MySQL backup. So let’s dump all the contents of your databases and compress them to be more portable.

mysqldump -u root -p –all-databases | gzip > myDatabases.sql.gz

If you now want to dump this data to another server, simply type:

gunzip < myDatabases.sql.gz | mysql -u root -p
