is also the incorrect command. When providing the password in the command, there should not be a space between the "-p" and the actual password. Try

        mysqldump -u user -ppassword database_name > outfile.sql

and see if that gets you anywhere.

Bingo -- that worked.

It's interesting that a space is optional between -u and user, but required to be absent between -p and password. Seems not symmetrical to me.

Many thanks.
