Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.

This is a php version of mysqldump cli that comes with MySQL, without dependencies, output compression and sane defaults.

Out of the box, MySQLDump-PHP supports backing up table structures, the data itself, views, triggers and events.

MySQLDump-PHP is the only library that supports:


From version 2.0, connections to database are made using the standard DSN, documented in PDO connection string.



Using Composer:

Using Curl to always download and decompress the latest release:

Getting started

With Autoloader/Composer:

Plain old PHP:

Refer to the wiki for some examples and a comparision between mysqldump and mysqldump-php dumps.

Changing values when exporting

You can register a callable that will be used to transform values during the export. An example use-case for this is removing sensitive data from database dumps:

Getting information about the dump

You can register a callable that will be used to report on the progress of the dump

Table specific export conditions

You can register table specific 'where' clauses to limit data on a per table basis. These override the default where dump setting:

Table specific export limits

You can register table specific 'limits' to limit the returned rows on a per table basis:

Constructor and default parameters

Dump Settings

The following options are now enabled by default, and there is no way to disable them since they should always be used.

PDO Settings


To dump a database, you need the following privileges :

Use SHOW GRANTS FOR [email protected]; to know what privileges user has. See the following link for more information:

Which are the minimum privileges required to get a backup of a MySQL database schema?


Current code for testing is an ugly hack. Probably there are much better ways of doing them using PHPUnit, so PR's are welcomed. The testing script creates and populates a database using all possible datatypes. Then it exports it using both mysqldump-php and mysqldump, and compares the output. Only if it is identical tests are OK. After this commit, some test are performed using phpunit.

Some tests are skipped if mysql server doesn't support them.

A couple of tests are only comparing between original sql code and mysqldump-php generated sql, because some options are not available in mysqldump.

Bugs (from mysqldump, not from mysqldump-php)

After this bug report, a new one has been introduced. _binary is appended also when hex-blob option is used, if the value is empty.


mysqldump-php is not backwards compatible with php 5.2 because we it uses namespaces. However, it could be trivially fixed if needed.


Write more tests, test with mariadb also.


Format all code to PHP-FIG standards.
