Hi,

I want to back up mysql database using c sharp and I found following code on google.

But it is not giving me whole database back up,instead it show following output.

C#:
/*!40101 SET @OLD_CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT=@@CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT */;
/*!40101 SET @OLD_CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS=@@CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS */;
/*!40101 SET @OLD_COLLATION_CONNECTION=@@COLLATION_CONNECTION */;
/*!40101 SET NAMES utf8 */;
/*!40103 SET @OLD_TIME_ZONE=@@TIME_ZONE */;
/*!40103 SET TIME_ZONE='+00:00' */;
/*!40014 SET @OLD_UNIQUE_CHECKS=@@UNIQUE_CHECKS, UNIQUE_CHECKS=0 */;
/*!40014 SET @OLD_FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=@@FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS, FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0 */;
/*!40101 SET @OLD_SQL_MODE=@@SQL_MODE, SQL_MODE='NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO' */;
/*!40111 SET @OLD_SQL_NOTES=@@SQL_NOTES, SQL_NOTES=0 */;
/*!40103 SET TIME_ZONE=@OLD_TIME_ZONE */;

/*!40101 SET SQL_MODE=@OLD_SQL_MODE */;
/*!40014 SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=@OLD_FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS */;
/*!40014 SET UNIQUE_CHECKS=@OLD_UNIQUE_CHECKS */;
/*!40101 SET CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT=@OLD_CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT */;
/*!40101 SET CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS=@OLD_CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS */;
/*!40101 SET COLLATION_CONNECTION=@OLD_COLLATION_CONNECTION */;
/*!40111 SET SQL_NOTES=@OLD_SQL_NOTES */;

C# code as below

C#:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.IO;
using System.Diagnostics;

namespace CRMService4ConsoleApplication
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Program.DatabaseBackup("G:/xampp/mysql/bin/mysqldump.exe", "dbname");
        }

        public static void DatabaseBackup(string ExeLocation, string DBName)
        {
            try
            {
                string tmestr = "";
                tmestr = DBName + "-" + DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString() + ".sql";
                tmestr = tmestr.Replace("/", "-");
                tmestr = "G:/" + tmestr;
                StreamWriter file = new StreamWriter(tmestr);
                ProcessStartInfo proc = new ProcessStartInfo();
                string cmd = string.Format(@"-u{0} -p{1} -h{2} {3}", "root", "password", "localhost", DBName);
                //string cmd = string.Format(@"-u{0} -p{1} -h{2} {3}", "root", "password", "localhost", "dbfile");
                proc.FileName = ExeLocation;
                proc.RedirectStandardInput = false;
                proc.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
                proc.Arguments = cmd;
                proc.UseShellExecute = false;
                Process p = Process.Start(proc);
                string res;
                res = p.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd();
                file.WriteLine(res);
                p.WaitForExit();
                file.Close();
                //MessageBox.Show("Backup Completed");
            }
            catch (IOException ex)
            {
                //MessageBox.Show(ex.Message.ToString());
            }
        }
    }
}
