Percona Server and XtraBackup for MacOS – experimental binaries

We see demand on MacOS binaries and decided to prepare binaries you can download and use. The are marked as “experimental”, as we do not have big history of using MacOS in production, so we are looking for your feedback and bug reports.


Please report any bugs found at Bugs in Percona Server.

For general questions, use our Percona Discussions Group, and for development questions our Percona Development Group.

    /usr/bin and /usr/share are good to put content from tar.gz

  2. DDS says:

    Do I just drop the contents of the xtrabackup-1.6 tarball into /bin and /share?

  3. awksedgreep says:

    Thanks for doing this. I don’t think we’ll be using them in production any time soon, but it sure helps with testing on dev/dba workstations and laptops.


  4. Jonathan says:

    Thanks for this. We’ll be putting this in production in the coming months, and will pass on anything we find of interest.

  5. Vadim Tkachenko says:


    You should be able to compile from source – just grab source .tar.gz

  6. Caio James says:


    Excellent work. Would there be a version that mac users can compile themselves? Or will binary be the only way to distribute the Mac version?


  7. Tim says:

    The link for Xtrabackup no longer works for Mac OS X. Was this intentional?

  8. Mark says:

    I am interested too in the MacOSX Version of Percona for my local development.
    Please update the link or give me a hint, how I can compile it myself.
