Can I use innobackupex options for xtrabackup

Hi,

I am testing MySQL backups using percona xtrabackup. In documentation, I have found 2 options - Innobackupex and xtrabackup. Compared to xtrabackup, innobackupex has more command line options. Can I use some of the innobackupex options for xtrabackup to make backups more flexible? If yes, what I can use and what I can’ use?

Below are the examples I would like to use with xtrabackup:

–port
–host
–history
–incremental-history-name

Thanks,
Vishnu

Innobackupexec is just a perl script that acts as a wrapper for xtrabackup so I’d guess you can just use innobackupexec with any options you like. :wink: Take a look at the documentation here: https://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/LATEST/innobackupex/innobackupex_script.html
