I just learned - I think - how to use mysqldump to "backup" my database (i.e. "export") and then "restore" it (i.e. "import") on my new MacBook Pro.
My concern is this...
How do I *truly* know that my "Backup & Restore" was successful?? :-/
When I have been migrating all of my files over from my old MacBook to my new MacBook Pro, there is less concern because 1.) They are whole files, and 2.) I can use something like "DeltaWalker to do a "byte-by-byte" comparison between my hard-drives (in cases where I did a "Copy & Paste" versus a "Cut & Paste").
Because this is just my "Dev" database, I guess it is less crucial, but I am hoping there is a way to make sure every "1 and 0" is in its proper place, so that when I use mysqldump to backup my "Production" database, I can rest assured that it is successfully backed up!!
