xtrabackup does not have access rights

IGGtIGGt EntrantCurrent User Role Novice
I've just installed percona-xtrabackup, and so for my first test I have Created a Directory (testdata) in my Home directory:
`mkdir testdata`

changed permissions on it
`sudo chmod 777 testdata`

and ran innobackupex
`innobackupex --user=root --password=xxxx /home/user/testdata/`

But I then get:
`2015-03-26 16:37:54 7fee54ebd740 InnoDB: Operating system error number 13 in a file operation.
InnoDB: The error means mysqld does not have the access rights to
InnoDB: the directory.`

Is this the `datatest` directory, or my MySQL '/var/lib/mysql' directory, or somewhere else?

    it turns out it's my fault. I needed to use `sudo innobackupex. . .`
