  • Percona Server -- is xtradb enabled?


    I just installed Percona Server on a Debian machine
    via: apt-get install percona-server-server

    When I start mysqld and try to set one of the new variables
    Eg. setting the variable "innodb_expand_import"
    shows an error that the variable is unknown.

    How can I verify I'm using the xtradb enhancements?

    # locate percona
    doesn't return anything that resembles the innodb plugin

    # locate xtradb
    returns nothing at all

    What am I missing here?
    Is the Percona Server daemon still "mysqld"?

    I've been over the documentation, but I have yet to find a guide that helps you with the setup until your first queries.

    Please advise.

    How are you setting the variable?

    Try running these queries from the mysql console and paste the output here.

    SELECT @@version, @@version_comment; SHOW ENGINES;
    Our documentation has a lot of answers about common questions on Percona software, have you checked there before posting that question here? http://www.percona.com/forums/core/i...lies/smile.png
