I am using CentOS 6.7 / XtraDB 5.7 / XtraBackup 2.4 and was wondering how to go an upgrade to XtraBackup 8.0 ;
It was initially installed using yum as in here:
But, if I go ahead and perform the following yum update it only wants to upgrade to 2.4.18-1.el6 :
If I try to install 8.0 directly, I get a conflict:
Now I believe the only way would be to remove 2.4 but if I try to do so, it wants to remove the XtraDB-Cluster package as well:
yum remove percona-xtrabackup-24.x86_64
Removing for dependencies:
I read that removing a package without the dependencies is not advisable, so I am wondering what are my options?
Should I just create a new dedicated VM and install 8.0 on it and perform the backups from there? Is this advisable?
Thank you !
