I apologize if the title doesn't quite describe what I'm looking for. Please edit if possible.
I have a bash script that does the following:
serveruser="root" serverip=126.96.36.199 serverpath="/var/www" ssh "$serveruser"@"$serverip" /bin/bash <<\EOF mkdir -p "$serverpath/mysqldumps/" cd "$serverpath/mysqldumps/" domainname=somedomain.com mysqldump -h 192.168.1.4 -udba -ppassword -c --add-drop-table --add-locks --create-options --databases --quick --lock-tables $domainname > $domainname.sql EOF
My problem is that the multiple lines I am "feeding" to ssh don't parse the variables I set before. This is obviously because the variables aren't set on the remote machine, only in my local shell. How could I pass these variables or possibly pass multiple lines to ssh in a different way?
