I'm try to run Magento Command

./bin/magento support:backup:code 
./bin/magento support:backup:db

But I keep getting this error

Error: Utility mysqldump not found

the MySql Server is in deferent than Magento 2 server

I try to install mysqldump but I get this error

E: Unable to locate package mysqldump

is there any way to run this command in magento 2 web servers and mysql database in another server.

  • Did you try to install mysqldump on your MySQL Server? Also, what OS is the MySQL server on?

  • HI Maddy thank your for reply I thank it is already installed because when I type mysqldump in to CLI I get command option or it have to install separately, I was looking for to install it separately but I could not find anything about install mysqldump separately, and I use Ubuntu 14.04 for MySql Server OS

  • Could be a permission issue. Check if db user has permission to run mysqldump. or if the user that is running the commands on shell has permission to execute mysqldump.
