Problem with scripting 'mysqldump'


I have the following small bit of script:

Code:
mysqldump -u root -p=password cacti > $MYSQL_FILE
But, whenever this runs I get the following error:

Code:
mysqldump: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) when trying to connect
Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Running this bit of the script manually from the command line I also get the same error but when I omit the '=password' bit, I get prompted for the root password and the backup works?

Remove the "=" sign from your script ....

Code:
mysqldump -u root -ppassword cacti > $MYSQL_FILE
