    mysqlhotcopy error

    I have a large database that I'm unable to backup with mysqldump.

    So I tried mysqlhotcopy , testing it on a smaller wordpress installation as:

    mysqlhotcopy bestfood_word /path/to/new_directory

    But it gave me this error:

    Invalid db.table name 'bestfood_word.bestfood_word`.`wp_categories' at /usr/bin/mysqlhotcopy line 854.


    Could anyone tell me what would cause this and if I should use a different command?

    Thanks

    btw I have MySQL version 4.1.22-standard
