The innobackupex Program

The innobackupex program is a symlink to the xtrabackup C program. It lets you perform point-in-time backups of InnoDB / XtraDB tables together with the schema definitions, MyISAM tables, and other portions of the server. In previous versions innobackupex was implemented as a Perl script.

This manual section explains how to use innobackupex in detail.


The innobackupex program is deprecated. Please switch to xtrabackup.
