Privileges for mysqldump
Posted by: Allen Moore

I want to create a script to run under the Windows XP Task Scheduler to backup up a database using mysqldump. Since this has to run unattended, I'm putting the password on the command line, which I don't really like doing. So I'd like to create a "user" account just for this purpose and grant it only the minimum privileges necessary to run mysqldump. What are the privileges that mysqldump needs? Or is there a better way to do this?
