    Hi,

    I run a busy website and cpanel's daily mysqldump locks my database - i presume it's using the options --lock-tables or --lock-all-tables and for my purposes these options need to be removed. Can anybody point me to the location of the specific script that contains the mysqldump command? I see no other option than to perform a hack because the backup configuration doesn't allow one to disable per account mysql backups without disabling backup altogether.

    Thanks

    mysqldump itself is a script that will need to be modified. I have never looked into it closely but you can find the script with the command below:
