How to take backup of a single table in a MySQL database?

MySQLMySQLi Database

The backup of a table can be made with the help of backup table as well as mysqldump utility. The backup table concept was used in MySQL version 5.0 and its earlier version.

Here, I am performing backup with the help of mysqldump. Firstly, we will open cmd with the help of shortcut key. The mysqldump will run at the cmd. Therefore, firstly open cmd with the help of shortcut key −

windowskey+R;

Here is the snapshot −

cmd open

Now, cmd will open −

cmd command

In this, the MySQL bin folder is present at the following location −

C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 8.0\bin

Type the above path to reach the “bin” folder.

Bin Folder

Now, we are in “bin” folder. The query to take backup is as follows −

C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 8.0\bin>mysqldump -u Manish -p business student <
E:\student.sql
Enter password: ***********

The following is the output −
