I would like to upgrade mysql from mysql-server-3.23.54 to
mysql-server-3.23.57 and understand that I will need to do a dump
before upgrading since the upgrade needs to overwrite the databases.
Since I have never done this before, I just want to make sure I have
the correct steps after reading over the mysql site and the man pages.
First I will dump all of my databases:
mysqldump -A > backup-file.sql
Then I will shutdown the mysql server and upgrade the mysql port with
the environment variable OVERWRITE_DB defined when running make install.
To rebuild the databases do I simply use:
mysqldump --all-databases > backup-file.sql
and then restart the mysql server using mysqld_safe
Am I missing any steps?
