Good morning, Aaron.
I have called up the link you provided and also am looking over the
mysqldump man page. Doesn't seem too hard. :-)
Just to clarify one thing, though ... Does a "running" database imply
that someone is accessing the database, or is a database "running"
whenever mysqld is running, whether or not anyone is accessing it?
In other words, if I used the tarball method, and had a means for
preventing access, would I still need to shut down mysqld first?
This is all somewhat hypothetical now that you've shown me the
"right" way :-) but I was just curious what constitutes a "running" database.
