AW: mysqldump

P: n/a
I have command in the script:

mysqldump databasename -u username -p password > /to/a/directory/dump.sql

When i run the script it asks for a password and takes the password given in
the script for a table name.

How can I give the password in the script???

Try it like this:
------------------
mysqldump databasename --password=PASSWORD

the password needs to be the mysql root password
