Latest Xtrabackup 2.4.7 doesn't recognise latest MySQL 5.7.18 InnoDB version

Balu75Balu75 EntrantLegacy User Role Beginner
I used MySQL Percona 5.5 server and Innobackupex for backups. Last week I've upgraded server to the latest 5.7.18 and hit an issue that I cannot do backups anymore because the latest Xtrabackup software doesn't recognize my current InnoDB storage:
170522 16:20:44 innobackupex-1.5.1: Connected to MySQL server
innobackupex-1.5.1: Error: Unsupported server version: '5.7.18-log' (InnoDB version: '5.7.18'). Please report a bug at

Is there any way to obtain xtrabackup software based on 5.7.18 server instead of 5.7.13 ?

Thank you.

    It should work, see here:

    Had a similar same problem on the default Docker MySQL 5.7 image ( mysql :5.7).

    Fixed by installing percona-xtrabackup-24 as it defaults to installing (installing percona-xtrabackup only installs 2.3.8)

    Just in case someone else hitting this problem finds this.
