  • Required : information_schema ** Only replace the "DB-NAME" and "PREFIX" with your DB-name and wildcard prefix match. ** Also replace with your own username and password for mysql server. This command uses the information_schema to wildcard match tables that we donot need from a database and than pipes the remaining tables out through "xargs" command to the mysqldump utility which than dumps those remaining tables into a sql dump file.
