Hi,
every sandbox has a "./my" script that allows the invocation of the tools belonging to the binaries used to install it.
For example
./my sqldump database_name > filename.sql

Notice the space between "./my" and "sqldump".
There is no need for host, username, or password. The "my" script knows where to get the defaults.
Likewise, you can do "./my sqlbinlog", "./my sqladmin", and so on.

Can you help with this problem?
