mysqldump

P: n/a
I have a databse with jpg in a blob field. I want to back it up with
mysqldump, but it appears to time out. Is there a way to limit the number
of records backed up (possibly with the where clause,) so that I can
backup my big table in blocks?

Thx, Terry

I do this daily, 3 db's totalling 6gb with probably 5gb total in blobs...
I've never had a timeout ( in 2+ year). do you do the --opt option? that
may help.
