Hi, i am trying to automate backups in a windows server that hast Mysql databases
I tried many scripts but it keeps failing..
If i try to run this command:
"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin\mysqldump.exe" -h $server -u root -pmypassword test > $fullPath "
I got the error:
cmd.exe : Warning: Using a password on the command line interface can be insecure.

So i tried to create aconfig.cfg file with the contents:
[client]
user=root
password=mypassword
host=localhost

And the call the config file with:
"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin\mysql.exe" --defaults-extra-file=e:\backups\config.cnf
But i got the error:
mysql.exe : ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)


How can i automate this ?

Thanks
