Get the INSERT statement from one row in Mysql

+3 votes

I am trying to find a way, how I can look for one row in a table with a search for the id, but then I use this to give me the INSERT statement (which creates this row again)

What I am trying to do, is get an audit where any update - checks the state of a row, saves it as its INSERT statement and saves this to an audit file.

From what I know, there is no way to make MySQL generate an insert statement from an existing row. The only way that I know about would be invoking mysqldump.

If you want an audit log, I suggest you better take a look at the binary logs from MySQL, combining automatic backups+binary log you can easily re-assemble the structure of a table/database. Plus, the binary log has everything you want: it logs dates and times, the exact executed queries and you can easily take snapshots from that.
