Restoring the Backup

Because xtrabackup doesn’t copy MyISAM files, .frm files, and the rest of the database, you might need to back those up separately. To restore the InnoDB data, simply do something like the following after preparing:

cd /data/backups/mysql/
rsync -rvt --exclude 'xtrabackup_checkpoints' --exclude 'xtrabackup_logfile' \
   ./ /var/lib/mysql
chown -R mysql:mysql /var/lib/mysql/
