Getting an MYSQLDump error

I upgrade MySQL DB from 5.6 to 5.7 version not too long now with no issues happened after. But at that time I did not use mysqldump command. Now I tried to backup the database and gettting this error message:

mysqldump: Error: ‘Access denied; you need (at least one of) the PROCESS privilege(s) for this operation’ when trying to dump tablespaces

How to fix this error.


The PROCESS privilege requirement was added only in MySQL version 5.7.31. This is an expected behavior and affects mysqldump utility. There is a report here and some discussions –

If your user has no admin privilege to the MySQL database, the quick workaround is to add the –no-tablespaces option. The usage like below.

mysqldump --no-tablespaces -u user -p DB_NAME > BACKUP_FILE.sql

On the other hand, if you have admin access, then grant that user the PROCESS privilege like this:

GRANT PROCESS ON *.* TO user@localhost;

Be warned that such privilege is usually reserved for server administrator users. It works on a global context, so it cannot be specified on a per database approach. Granting just any user this PROCESS privilege is not a good idea. It may cause “data leaks” when sensitive queries gets exposed because this privilege can allow a user to see queries being executed in active sessions. This becomes more critical when the server instance is shared.

mysql has two pid files

I just finished re-building my (5.7) slave from a hot backup. When I issue

 systemctl start mysqld

it just “sat” there for over 20 minutes. It usually takes less than 10 seconds for the service to start. When I look at my server status, I see two mysql processes

mysql     1938     1  0 15:25 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/mysqld --daemonize --pid-file=/var/run/mysqld/
mysql     1940     1 99 15:25 ?        00:11:48 /usr/sbin/mysqld --daemonize --pid-file=/var/run/mysqld/
root      4024  3122  0 15:37 pts/0    00:00:00 grep --color=auto mysqld

I stopped and restarted my service and there are two different PIDs showing up again

I have never seen that. Is there something incorrect with my configuration?

WHERE statement returning out of bounds returns

I have this query that I’m trying to work with, and ultimately I’m trying to get it to return results as soon as it matches one of my status WHERE requirements….but that’s not even my question. My question is that my query is returning a value that is TOTALLY out of bounds of my WHERE requirements, and it’s just perplexing me as to why.

I have a table named leads. It has about ~30,000 rows in the table, but the specific dataset I want to be targeting is here:

| lead_id | status | owner   |
|    3653 |     18 | 6585993 |
|    3984 |      3 | 6585993 |
|    4100 |     18 | 6585993 |
|    8916 |     21 | 6585993 |
|   20329 |      1 | 6585993 |

Lead ID is the primary key, it’s int(11) and AUTO_INCREMENTing, status is a FOREIGN KEY, and owner is a FOREIGN KEY as well.

Here is the query I’m working with:

SELECT lead_id, status, owner FROM leads WHERE owner = 6585993 AND (`status` = 1) OR (`status` = 21) OR (`status` = 3) LIMIT 1;

My ultimate goal with this query is I want to have it cascade through my last three WHERE requirements (ie, first check the owner requirement, then – if there exists no lead with a status of “1”, then check for leads with a status of “21” and if no lead exists with a status of “1” or “21”, then check for leads with a status of “3”, and if no leads exist with any of those three statuses who also have the correct owner requirement, return none.

With how the query is written above, it returns the what I expect:

| lead_id | status | owner   |
|   20329 |      1 | 6585993 |

Here’s the problem…when I change my status cascade to look like this (change it so that the status of “21” is to be selected first):

SELECT lead_id, status, owner FROM leads WHERE owner = 6585993 AND (`status` = 21) OR (`status` = 1) OR (`status` = 3) LIMIT 1;

It returns this:

| lead_id | status | owner   |
|    9435 |      1 | 1083618 |

And herein lies my ultimate question…

Why does the above query return a response with a completely wrong owner?
