I want to make a copy of a MySQL database but preserve the information_schema.create_time for each of the tables. I haven't been able to find an option to do that with mysqldump.
There's a response for this here: MySQL - mysqldump. preserve update_time and modify_time
As @RolandoMySQLDBA said:
There is no way to reload the INFORMATION_SCHEMA manually. All the tables are dynamic entities.
