I tried to backup my database with MySQL Administrator following the instructions given in the Codex. This is the first time ever I try to backup it.
I got the following error message:
Error during backup.
Cannot flush tables with read lock.
As I am a newbie with MySQL I have no idea what that means. What should I do to fix the problem?
What I already did was that in Advanced Options I changed the “Lock All Tables” option to “InnoDB Online Backup”. With that change I was able to create a backup file but I just don’t know if that file is any useful.
