This feature has been removed from recent versions of MariaDB.

Since the current implementation of LOAD DATA FROM MASTER and LOAD TABLE FROM MASTER is very limited, these statements are deprecated in versions 4.1 of MySQL and above. We will introduce a more advanced technique (called "online backup") in a future version. That technique will have the additional advantage of working with more storage engines.

For MariaDB and MySQL 5.1 and earlier, the recommended alternative solution to using LOAD DATA FROM MASTER or LOAD TABLE FROM MASTER is using mysqldump or mysqlhotcopy. The latter requires Perl and two Perl modules (DBI and DBD:mysql) and works for MyISAM and ARCHIVE tables only. With mysqldump, you can create SQL dumps on the master and pipe (or copy) these to a mysql client on the slave. This has the advantage of working for all storage engines, but can be quite slow, since it works using SELECT.

Transfers a copy of the table from the master to the slave. This statement is implemented mainly debugging LOAD DATA FROM MASTER operations. To use LOAD TABLE, the account used for connecting to the master server must have the RELOAD and SUPER privileges on the master and the SELECT privilege for the master table to load. On the slave side, the user that issues LOAD TABLE FROM MASTER must have privileges for dropping and creating the table.

The conditions for LOAD DATA FROM MASTER apply here as well. For example, LOAD TABLE FROM MASTER works only for MyISAM tables. The timeout notes for LOAD DATA FROM MASTER apply as well.
