How to use sudo to download database?

    Hi there,

    I managed to get into my Amazon instance and have used the command cd /var/lib/mysql to get to the mysql folder.

    Now I would like to download everything inside OR download just the database. I tried using this command: sudo mysqldump -all databases

    But this error returned:
    mysqldump: Got error: 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
    '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) when trying to connect

    Any help is really appreciated :)!

    Nope, the mysql database was inactive. I've sorted it out now though!

    Thanks for the help guys.
