I need two commands, and I really don't feel like conquering the manual right now.

I need the command to dump an entire database out to a .sql file. Then I need the command to write that dump back into a database. Basically, I need to take the live AppleNova database for the forums and write it into the non-production server's database so I have data to play with there.

First person to hook me up wins a cookie. It might have teh whipped cream.

It is with great regret that we say our farewells to Jack, who passed away on May 28th, 2005. Jack, you will be missed by all

Telnet in and find the MySQL programs directory (usually /usr/local/mysql/bin )
Run this command:

Code:
mysqldump <dbname> > /forum.sql
Where <dbname> is the name of the database of vBulletin.

You should then transfer this forum.sql file onto the new server.

Find the MySQL programs directory through Telnet on the new server.

Run this command:

Code:
mysqladmin create <dbname> mysql <dbname> /forum.sql

Hell I don't even know what it means. Now where are my whippets?

Yeah those commands will do it. You will need to login as the appropriate user though by issuing the -u <username> flag and -p flag for password

LoCash, aren't you the one that told me just to use phpMyAdmin for AppleNova DB issues? For the terminal- or manual-phobic, there's a simple "export" option with a number of easy-to-read options.

I was just going to recommend phpMyAdmin for this, painfully simple. Either that or I was going to make a test database on my machine and do this for you and just have phpMyAdmin print out the code to do it for me and paste it here for you. I personally hate MySQL's syntax. hate. hate. hate.

Mysqls syntax isnt all that bad. It just get complicated with sub-statements and things like SELECT (SELECT * FROM ATable) as foo FROM BTable WHERE ID = (SELECT * FROM CTable);
