How to make sure that the mysqldump.exe version of MySQL Workbench is equal to or newer than that of the target server.
Sometimes when trying to export a database through MySQL Workbench from a local server, you get a ‘mysql Version Mismatch’ warning.
As it says, it is just a warning, so when you click ‘Continue Anyway’ the database dump is created.
The warning is quite informative in this case. All you need to do is to update/specify Workbench’s path to the dump tool.
1. Go to ‘Edit’ > ‘Preferences’ in the top navigation and click on the ‘Administrator’ tab.
2. Find ‘Path to mysqldump Tool:’ and browse to the ‘mysqldump.exe’ program in your server.
Currently, I am using WampServer 3, so the path is: ‘C:\wamp64\bin\mysql\mysql5.7.11\bin\mysqldump.exe’.
3. Hit ‘OK’.
4. Try to export the database into a dump file again. It should no longer show the warning.
