After a recent Debian upgrade on my LAMP webserver to Wheezy, mysqldump is throwing a warning:
-- Warning: Skipping the data of table mysql.event. Specify the --events option explicitly.
Events seems to be something special. Man page for mysqldump:
* --events, -E Include Event Scheduler events for the dumped databases in the output.
I have tried adding
--skip-events to tell mysqldump that this is explicitly the behaviour I wanted (although I don't know why...) but it still generates the warning.
How can I (a) stop it emitting this warning, or (b) otherwise include this awkward table, if its something I should be keeping.
