How to add MySQL Dump to path?

In this article, you will learn how to add the MySQL Dump utility to the path variable. This is necessary for define arguments for the MySQL database backup script installed on Linux.

Run the terminal as root. For example:

Execute the following commands:

mv /usr/bin/mysqldump /usr/bin/mysqldump0
echo '#!/bin/bash' > /usr/bin/mysqldump
echo 'export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=' >> /usr/bin/mysqldump
echo '/usr/bin/mysqldump0 $@' >> /usr/bin/mysqldump
chmod a+x /usr/bin/mysqldump

After assign the path to the MySQL Dump utility should solve problems with performing a backup of MySQL databases.
