Commands to Backup and Restore Data onto a New Database

Command to backup:

mysqldump databaseName  backupFilename.sql

Where mysqldump is the command, databaseName is the name of the database and backupFilename is the name of the file in which the data will be backed up.

In case you want to backup multiple databases, you can use the command:

mysqldump --databases databaseName1 databaseName2  backupFilename.sql

Command to restore:

mysql-prompt use databaseName  
mysql-prompt source backupFilename.sql
