After upgrading to CentOS 6.6, our extrabackup backup has stopped working. When I attempt to run the backup off the command line, it fails with: “Access denied for user ‘mysql’@‘localhost’ (using password: NO) at /usr/bin/innobackupex line 2978”.
The complete command line and traceback is at: http://pastebin.com/vEu7jMpR
Here are a few notes about my setup:
mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.1.73, for redhat-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 5.1
Linux hostname.domain.tld 2.6.32-504.8.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Jan 28 21:11:36 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
CentOS release 6.6 (Final)
yum list perl-DBD-MySQL
Loaded plugins: versionlock
perl-DBD-MySQL.x86_64 4.013-3.el6 @base
Thanks very much for your help.
