Ansible - mysql_db module

Updated:   |  Ansible articles

If you are not familiar with modules, check out Ansible - Getting Started with Modules.

The mysql_db module is used to do various things against a mySQL or MariaDB database, such as creating a database, dropping a database, dumping a database, and so on. In this example, all databases will be dumped to a file named all.sql.

---
- hosts: all
  tasks:
  - name: dump all databases to /tmp/all.sql
     mysql_db:
       state: dump
       name: all
       target: /tmp/all.sql
       login_unix_socket: /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
...

 

If the following is returned, use the yum module to install epel-release and python-pip, and then use the pip module to install pymysql.

fatal: [server1.example.com]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "msg": "The PyMySQL (Python 2.7 and Python 3.X) or MySQL-python (Python 2.X) module is required."}

 

The following can be done to import a .sql dump.

---
- hosts: all
  tasks:
  - name: restore all databases using /tmp/all.sql
     mysql_db:
       state: import
       name: all
       target: /tmp/all.sql
       login_unix_socket: /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
...
