MAMP and Location of the mySQL dump path

By , July 3, 2011

I’ve been using MAMP which has allowed me to develop my WordPress sites locally. I’ve recently installed the wp-dbmanager in order to do backups before doing major changes to a test site and had trouble finding the mySQL dump path. Thanks to the help from Adrian Tomic, I was able to set the dump path quickly.

The path to the “files” are as follows.

To mysqldump: /Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/mysqldump
To mysql: /Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/mysql

This small post it to help me remember for future sites I need it for & it may help others.
