--events error warning

  • Steven J. Reilly

    I'm using automysqlbackup 2.6+debian.3-1 on Debian Wheezy with MySQL server 5.5.30+dfsg-1.1

    When I run automysqlbackup I get the email report but I also get a second ERRORS REPORTED email whch contains;

    • Warning: Skipping the data of table mysql.event. Specify the -events option explicitly.

    I can't find a mysql.event table and I can't find any errors or warnings during the backup.

    How can I disable this Warning error?

    Body: run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/automysqlbackup exited with return code 1

    By another way, I am on Ubuntu 12.04 (64-bit) and the my.cnf (I think this is clear) is the configuration file from MySQL 5.5.31-ubuntu Server. It is in:
