View Full Version : Confusing Documentation Wording

I just wanted to point out a quite confusing typo in a bit of the Enterprise documentation.


Dump Store Routine

To improve the performance of database functions and procedures, MySQL versions 5.0 and higher allow users to compile and store them as reusable routines. This option specifies whether stored routines should be include during mysqldump backups. mysqldump is used for all logical and full backups, and can be used for some raw backups depending on the storage engine. The default value is no. If your version of MySQL supports this feature, it should probably be set to on, especially if you are scheduling logical or full backups.

The confusion is the last sentence, saying "it should probably be set to ON". In the previous sentence, you have the word NO in bold, and ON is not actually an option at all. The options are YES, NO, DEFAULT. So, does ON mean YES? Or is ON a typo of NO?

Anyhoo, keep up the good work. Love the product.

Thanks for catching this. Yes. this is a typo. It should be NO not ON.

It has been fixed.
