Installing Percona XtraBackup from Repositories¶
Percona provides repositories for yum (RPM packages for Red Hat, CentOS and Amazon Linux AMI) and apt (.deb packages for Ubuntu and Debian) for software such as Percona Server, Percona XtraBackup, and Percona Toolkit. This makes it easy to install and update your software and its dependencies through your operating system’s package manager. This is the recommend way of installing where possible.
Following guides describe the installation process for using the official Percona repositories for .deb and .rpm packages.
