    Unanswered: Exporting contents of db to text file

    I am accessing mysql server using ssh and i wanted to export contents of a table named Random for only ids equal to 100

    so i wrote this command in mysql

    select * from Random WHERE id ='100' INTO OUTFILE '/homes/username/details.txt';


    Is this statement wrong ?Or is there something wrong in the way path is defined?

    My guess is that your outfile path is invalid, possibly because of the "s" in "homes" since that is close to a common, valid value.

    SQL Fiddle likes your syntax, so that isn't a problem.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.
