Backup MySQL Erro

Hi! Hope someone can help me:

I got this error creating a backup:
"Incorrect path or mysqldump utility not executable.
Check $_DB_mysqldump_path definition in config.php.
Variable currently defined as: /usr/bin/mysqldump.exe"

My site is hosted by an ISP. Safe-mode is off (will be turned on tomorrow). I don't know what the path to my mysql db dump thingie is... maybe that's the problem (OR is it always /usr/bin/mysqldump ??). I added .exe because I read that in a very old thread.

Nothing works...

Thanx in Advance!!

If you don't know where the mysqldump executable is, then ask your hosting service. It could be anywhere, although the default path is a common location for it.

You only need to add the ".exe" if your web server is running on Windows.

bye, Dirk
