I'm trying to fix a MySQL replication issue. Currently here are major
discrepancies between the master and the slave.
Replication has been broken for the past couple of weeks. Here's my plan,
please correct me if I'm wrong:
1) grab a dump of the master (server) database: mysqldump -u -p dbname >
2) drop the slave/partially replicated database on the slave server: drop
3) import the db dump created at step #1 into the slave server.
4) start replication.
5) get rid of old binary log cruft that's no longer needed.
Again, please correct me if I'm wrong.
