Innobackupex install steps for MySQL-8.0.33

Hi ,
Currently, we are using innobackupex version 2.4.29 for MySQL 5.7. However, it’s incompatible with MySQL 8.0.33. I’m looking advice on the appropriate version for MySQL 8.0.33 and installation steps for innobackupex. While I checked Percona’s downloads, I only found XtraBackup packages. We prefer to continue using innobackupex. Any guidance on this would be appreciated.

@naga Please refer to our documentations it has all what you need Percona XtraBackup

Hello @naga,
innobackupex is dead software. The development of it stopped with MySQL 8.0. You will need to switch to using Xtrabackup 8.0.

Hi @Mughees_Ahmed
Thank you for your assistance! I will go through the documents and configure our MySQL 8 databases with XtraBackup.

Hi @matthewb
Thank you for the update. We’ll transition to using Xtrabackup 8.0 for our MySQL 8 database backups :slight_smile:
