mySQL dump path and MAMP

When moving this site, I used WordPress DBmanager plugin to back up my database. I had trouble finding the path to mySQL and the mysqldump.

The path to the “files” are as follows.

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

Hope it will help someone 🙂

  1. Perfect – needed to find the path, my google search landed on this page, the details above solved my problem straight away … many thanks!!!

  2. Well done, mate. This was a tremendous help. There are people piling on the gratitude here and it’s no wonder: sometimes little nuggets like having the proper urls for a plugin when using MAMP (or in my case MAMP PRO) are a real help. Cheers!

  3. I have been surfing online greater than 3 hours as of late, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours.

    It is lovely price enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just
    right content material as you did, the net will likely
    be a lot more useful than ever before.

    1. Thank you! 🙂 There is a site called that has a lot of solutions to common problems. You can also ask questions there (if I haven’t written about it 😉

  4. Awesome, thank you for sharing. Helpful for me today, as I’m sure it will be helpful for others in future 🙂

  5. Didn’t realize DBManager was emailing me empty backup files all this time. Good thing I tried making a copy of my site before I actually needed the backup.

    Thanks for spelling out the proper paths for me 😉
