View Full Version : Remote Backup

May 27th, 2011, 12:01 AM
I have the following problem:
I want to make the server 1, a backup of the database server 2. I've read the guides and so have been guiding and now no idea why this does not work

dailyrun:backup:INFO: mysqladmin --user="root" --password="*****" --host="linux-idgn" variables
dailyrun:backup:ERROR: Output of command: 'mysqladmin --user="root" --password="*****" --host="linux-idgn" variables' is {
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'linux-idgn' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'' (using password: YES)'
dailyrun:backup:ERROR: Cannot connect to mysql server!

Please check the password is correct. Does the MySQL server allow remote connections?
