MySQL dump on WAMP server using PHP

I am trying to dump the mysql database using a PHP file.
I am using windows 7 OS.

but I am always getting error;
This is my code

$user='root';
$pass='mypassword';
$host='localhost';
//$sql_file='db_backup.sql';
$cmd = "e:\\wamp\\bin\\mysql\\mysql5.6.12\\bin\\mysqldump -h$host -u$user -p$pass hospitalerp > db_backup.sql";
exec($cmd, $output, $return);
if ($return != 0) { //0 is ok
die('Error: ' . implode("\r\n", $output));
}

echo "dump complete";


Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Answer

Ok I found the solution, may someone find it useful.

$user='root';
$pass='mypassword';
$host='localhost';

$cmd='e:\wamp\bin\mysql\mysql5.6.12\bin\mysqldump --user='.$user.' --password='.$pass .' --host=localhost hospitalerp > db_backup4.sql';
//var_dump($cmd);exit;
exec($cmd, $output, $return);
if ($return != 0) { //0 is ok
    die('Error: ' . implode("\r\n", $output));
}

echo "dump complete";
