I am having a problem with a script to dump a mysql database to a text
file. When I run the command below it creates the database.sql file but
it only puts the first three lines in that file they look like this
# MySQL dump 8.13
# Host: localhost    Database: testdata1
# Server version        3.23.37

If I run the following at the command line it work perfect passing the whole
database to the txt file
/usr/bin/mysqldump -u testdata1 -ptestdata1 testdata1
> /home/sites/www.directphp.net/sitebackup/databases/testdata1.sql

Why is it stopping on the third line when I run it with a PHP script

This is my script

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){

exec("/usr/bin/mysqldump -u $databaseusername -p$databasepassword $databasename >
