--ignore-db-dir Parameter


I am using Ver 5.5.27-29.0-log of Percona Server on Linux (x86_64) (Percona Server (GPL), Release rel29.0, Revision 315)

and I am curious about the --ignore-db-dir Parameter, which is available in “stock” mysql, but seems not to be available in my Percona installation. Am I missing something, or is it maybe planned to be implemented?

Best regards,

Hi Tobias,

–ignore-db-dir parameter is added from MySQL 5.6.3, so it can’t be available in MySQL 5.5 versions even in native mysql and Percona servers.

For that you have to install MySQL 5.6 which is still in alpha release and not recommended for production servers.
