I have a remote MySQL DB in the cloud on JAWSDB.
updatedAt timestamps for records that are in UTC TZ.
I’ll backup these DBs using
mysqldump -h HOST -u USER -p > backup.sql. I then restore these to a local MySQL Server using
mysql -u USERNAME -p DB_NAME < backup.sql
However, upon inspecting the new local backup…I notice that the
createdAt timestamps are for my local TZ (EST and so currently 5hrs before the UTC version that are actually in JAWSDB). The
updatedAt timestamps are still in
Here’s how I created those timestamp fields btw.
`createdAt` TIMESTAMP DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, `updatedAt` DATETIME DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
So it seems like the restore of the dump is converting from UTC to EST just for the
createdAt field. Could this be due to an engine or mysql version mismatch between JawsDB and my local server?
Any insights? Thanks!
