I am currently using automysqlbackup to take local backups of my mySQL database. I recently started to having problems that is connected to that automysqlbackup (or in fact mysqldump) does lock the tables before dumping.
I have not access to any mySQL user or the root user, only the /etc/mysql/debian.cnf.
I would need to add the parameter "--lock-tables=false" so automysqlbackup does'nt lock the tables. I am aware of the risks that follows.
