I can navigate to the download link (, but clicking it returns ‘access denied’. Intentional?



Not intentional but due to wrong umask. Fixed now, could you please check?

Peter Laursen

yes .. works now! thanks!


xtrabackup binary file 150 Byte ???

xtrabackup-1.0.tar.gz 09-Dec-2009 22:21 150

The file seems to be broken. It has a size of only 150 Bytes and if you extract it you get only an empty folder xtrabackup-1.0/bin. Could you check, please?

Fantastic. I’ve been using xtrabackup for a long time now in production. It’s a fantastic product and congratulations on making it to 1.0!



The archive was really broken. rpmbuild removed files which were supposed to be used for tar.gz package.
The respective bug is created to prevent this error in next releases.
Meanwhile I fixed the archive. Please check again.

Congrats on 1.0!
Any plans to provide binaries for solaris 10 x86?


xtrabackup helps me a lot.Just say THANKS here


Any plans for supporting the compressed innodb tables? Ran into an error using this after switching to mysql 5.1.41 and the innodb plugin 1.5 with compression enabled on a couple tables.

Vadim Tkachenko


release-1.0 should work with compressed tables. If you have problems with that please report bug

Why did you build 5.0 version only?
The binary cannot support Barracuda.
There are complain about it…


vadim, i’m seeing the error with what I believe is the latest build, 1.0-56 64 bit CentOS platform and mysql 5.1.41.


Can you make RPM available the new version that supports compressed tables? I see that you have a patch, but the repository does not have a new build. Thanks!
