MySQL: 6.0’s new utility for backup and restore

Robin Schumacher, MySQL’s Director of Product Management overviews MySQL 6.0’s backup and restore utility.

MySQL 6.0’s backup/restore utility is a completely new tool in the server that allows for backup and restore commands to be issued right from a mysql client command prompt, which means no shelling out to an operating system prompt and/or scripting shell scripts to run a backup.

The syntax in the current alpha release looks like the following:

BACKUP {DATABASE | SCHEMA} { * | db_name [, db_name] ... }
TO 'image_file_name'
RESTORE FROM 'image_file_name';
