mysqldump stuck at connecting to localhost
mySQL version: Ver 8.0.27 for Win64 on x86_64 (MySQL Community Server - GPL)
windows 10 version: 20H2 19042.1586
I am trying to create a backup of a database. When I try to run the following command:
mysqldump -u root -p -v -P 3306 --quick --single-transaction sakila > sakila.sql
all I see in the terminal is
-- Connecting to localhost...
What could I be doing wrong. I am anticipating some kind of error message but nothing happens.
I believe screenshots are against the rules, but if there is another way to visualize what's happening I can try that
Finally figured this out.
Instead of using Git Bash, I used PowerShell in administrator mode. The computer I'm using is heavily restricted so something must have blocked/prevented the use in Git Bash. Hope this helps someone in the future!
