Do I need the percona server and any patches for xtrabackup 2.4.20 to work correctly?
I want to install the latest and most compatible version of percona xtrabackup on Slackware, and Slackbuild has only 2.1.5:
I once installed version 2.3.9, and since then the daily online backup and restoration work correctly.
However, I saw that version 2.3.9 is EOL, so I want to update to version 2.4.20.
I'm trying to build Slackbuild based on the 2.1.5 file, but then a curiosity arose: I need the percona server and this xtradb55.patch patch (maybe a more updated patch?).
I want xtrabackup only for online backup and restoration. As a database server we use MariaDB 10.0.28.
