  • backup.sql size seems small

    Greetings to all. Just recently backed up to perform the 2.2.8 upgrade. As I was sorting out by backup.sql files ( I keep atleast two on hand just in case) I noticed the one I performed today (using mysqldump via ssh) was only 6kb big. While the last backup I performed a month ago was 1092kb big. Is that normal?
    I went back and deleted backup.sql and re-dumped and it came back the same size (6kb). Any ideas?

    No that's not normal. What command are you using to make the backup?

        Hmmm...that really doesn't make any sense. Fill out a support ticket at:

        Be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP and telnet/ssh.

          Err, dunno how my isp will feel about me giving out my ssh info...
          It's not that I don't trust the vbulletin team but they REALLY did not want to give me the account in the first place, and I can just see them scanning their logs and seeing the different IP address..

            There's not much we'll be able to do without it. Sorry.

                  For anyone else's benefit I was not using the correct syntax in typing the command correctly as can be seen above. So I wasn't even getting a good dump! I typed:

                  mysqldump --opt -uUSERNAME -p databasename > backup.sql

                  What I needed to type was:

                  mysqldump --opt -u USERNAME -p DATABASENAME > backup.sql

                  Apparently that space between the u and my USERNAME made all the difference in the world.


                  Much thanks to Steve and the vBulletin team for awesome support!
