Xtradb extra files and move to a new Mysql server

pamamolfpamamolf EntrantLegacy User Role Beginner

I am testing the xtradb and i just use this command:
innobackupex /path/to/backupdir/

After checking the backup folder i found that all /var/lib/mysql/ files are there.....

So after searching and reading i try this command:
innobackupex --databases="database1" /path/to/backupdir/

Much better now :)

It seems that i got the dadabase only that i want....with a few extra files that xtradb create/copy.

Now i want to ask if the second command is ok to just backup only my database and if i want to move it on a new mysql server do i have to copy the extra files that xtradb create/copy ?

Thank you

    Are you using MyISAM/InnoDB? Can you provide the list of files which you can see in backupdir after taking backup of single database?
