I'm taking over an old database, and while doing recovery tests from my dump I found out a table is wrongly backed up, the table definition is truncated.
Looking at the live db I've found a column name with special character in the name. That is the column name is Località.
My current mysql dump produces the following:
/*!40101 SET @saved_cs_client = @@character_set_client */; /*!40101 SET character_set_client = utf8 */; CREATE TABLE `contabilita_banche` ( `ID_Banca` int(6) unsigned NOT NULL default '0', `Descrizione` varchar(70) default NULL, `Località; /*!40101 SET character_set_client = @saved_cs_client */;
The first problem is that the table doesn't end there, there are other fields after Località, so the structure dump is incomplete. Other than this the dump doesn't throw any error and the data is dumped correctly to the end.
I tried several commands, all without success:
mysqldump -r /tmp/cbnew2.sql --default-character-set=latin1 --no-tablespaces --skip-lock-tables --quick -u root -p -h host Dbname contabilita_banche mysqldump -r /tmp/cbnew2.sql --default-character-set=utf8 --no-tablespaces --skip-lock-tables --quick -u root -p -h host Dbname contabilita_banche
Server version is
5.5.38. Is there any way to correctly produce the dump?
