Where is mysql/bin directory?

database backups using mysql dump , i need mysql/bin directory to do the following
mysqldump -h myhost -u root -pmypass ijdb > ijdb_backup.sql

where do i find this bin directory, or if that doesnt exist where should put that dump file to make that command work?
Thanks in advance

Hi abeli,
It is not compulsary that the dump file has to be in the bin folder. You can dump it anywhere by giving the path.

mysqldump -u root -p[root_password] [database_name] > yourpath here/dumpfilename.sql
