Hi just got the commands working fine and tested so now planning on automating the backup and prepare process. The backup process can be added to a cron job quite easily. When the innobackupex script runs its apply-logs script can this be done to a folder and all subfolders within it?
My perfect setup is to do a innobackupex hotbackup, then apply the logs straight away, then when this process is complete to move the files to another directory. These files would be then ready for restoring in the event of disaster.
I’ve tried adding a /* to the end of the commandline with something like this:
sudo /usr/bin/innobackupex-1.5.1 --apply-log /destinationfolder/backup/perconabackup/*
But not sure it would do the job?
Anyone any ideas?
