while restoring mysql database, views changed into tables

In the backup script the views are first created as tables which are then dropped at the end of the script as each view is being created, so it seems that an error occurs while creating the views at the end of the script.

However when a view is created there is a user who is used in the DEFINER clause of the view who may not exist in your database, e.g., DEFINER=user123@192.168.1.%

I usually remove that clause in the backup script and it tends to work.

To verify add the -v option when importing the database
