mysql backup module does not report error


This happened in the backup all databases backup. One of the databases had a very big table and produced this error:

mysqldump: Error 1317: Query execution was interrupted when dumping table free_testresult at row: 12198540

All database backups after that where 132 bytes, they where there, sort-off, a file with the database name was there, but the data was not backuped. I was able to fix the backup by enabling the option "Dump rows one at a time?". I know this error is the result of big tables, but that is not the point.

The point is that i configured the backup to mail only on failure and i didn't get an email.

Howdy -- so just to verify -- if you go into Backup and Restore -> Backup Logs, does it list them as completing successfully? You can determine that by looking in the "OK" field.


where do i find backup and restore? this is webmin only, no cloudmin, no virtualmin.

this backup is done (via cron) with the "Backup Databases" button in the mysql webmin module.

Ah, I understand what you're saying now.

I'll do some work on testing and reproducing that issue. Thanks for the report!
