[OT] Bleah -- can't dump db


#1

[root@www typo]# mysqldump -u hal9000 -p typo >backup3.out
Enter password:
mysqldump: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user ‘hal9000’@‘localhost’
(using
password: YES) when trying to connect

Got any idea what’s wrong?

Silly question, but do those parameters exactly match what’s in
config/database.yml? For example, leaving out the hostname on the
mysqldump command /may/ make a difference, because you’re connecting
over the local socket.

I think I once encountered a similar problem.

Did you try to remove the whitespace at the password statement and
enter your password directly?

Just turn “-p typo” into “-pyourpassword typo” and leave the rest as is.

This did the trick for me here…
