[SOLVED] MySQL dump by query

Issue

Is it possible to do mysqldump by single SQL query?

I mean to dump the whole database, like phpmyadmin does when you do export to SQL

Solution

not mysqldump, but mysql cli…

mysql -e "select * from myTable" -u myuser -pxxxxxxxxx mydatabase

you can redirect it out to a file if you want :

mysql -e "select * from myTable" -u myuser -pxxxxxxxx mydatabase > mydumpfile.txt

Update:
Original post asked if he could dump from the database by query. What he asked and what he meant were different. He really wanted to just mysqldump all tables.

mysqldump --tables myTable --where="id < 1000"
