MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Making a Copy of a Database

7.4.5.1 Making a Copy of a Database

shell> mysqldump db1 > dump.sql
shell> mysqladmin create db2
shell> mysql db2 < dump.sql

Do not use --databases on the mysqldump command line because that causes USE db1 to be included in the dump file, which overrides the effect of naming db2 on the mysql command line.
