We are trying to make partial backups that allows more control in case of restore.
I’m using partial backup option and it seems like the option is ignored.
See the command:
innobackupex --databases=“mail” --no-timestamp /backup_dir/2012-09-12/
MySQL server configuration including the option innodb_file_per_table and the server is running with this option from the beginning.
The output of innobackupex indicates that all the other db’s are copied too.
Finally we get the backup directory full of other db’s backups.
Some server info:
mysqld Ver 5.1.63-0+squeeze1-log for debian-linux-gnu on x86_64 ((Debian))
Maybe we are missing something here.
