  • How to restore a xtrabackup compressed file with extension .qp

    Hi Team,

    We are using xtrabackup tool to take the DB backup, and the file is getting compressed using like 2014_07_27_20_00_04.qp. As part of restoring on a new server, I have taken backup of Data directory /var/lib/mysql and wanted to restore at the same location.

    Could you please guide us through the procedure.

    Thanks,
    Krishna

    The .qp extension is from qpress, which is the tool Xtrabackup uses to compress the backup. Below is a quick guide from Percona on taking / restoring a compressed backup using the innobackupex wrapper:
