Can anyone suggest how I could verify that the files created by
mysqldump are "okay"? They are being created for backup purposes, and
the last thing I want to do is find out that the backups themselves are
in some way corrupt.
I know I can check the output of the command itself, but what if.. I
don't know... if there are problems with the disc it writes to, or
something like that. Is there any way to check whether the output file
is "valid" in the sense that it is complete and syntactically correct?
Gary Please do NOT send me 'courtesy' replies off-list.
