MySQL / Amazon RDS error: & ldquo; you do not have SUPER privileges & hellip; & rdquo;


I'm attempting to copy my mysql database from an Amazon EC2 to an RDS:

I successfuly did a mysqldump of my database into my root folder using this:

[email protected]:~# mysqldump my_database -u my_username -p > my_database.sql

Then I tried to transfer this .sql file to my new RDS database:

[email protected]:~# mysql my_database -u my_username -p -h < my_database.sql

Unfortunately, I get following error message:

You do not have the SUPER privilege and binary logging is enabled
(you *might* want to use  the less safe log_bin_trust_function_creators variable)

I tried to GRANT SUPER.. in a variety of ways but I'm getting errors when I try to do that too. Typing mysql > FLUSH privileges; doesn't work either.

I'm a mysql beginner so sorry for such an easy question. Thoughts?

Per, you need to set log_bin_trust_function_creators to 1 in AWS console, to load your dump file without errors.

If you want to ignore these errors, and load the rest of the dump file, you can use the -f option:

mysql -f my_database -u my_username -p -h < my_database.sql

The -f will report errors, but will continue processing the remainder of the dump file.
