Is there anyway to exclude one database from the innobackup script? I currently backup all the databases in mysql but I am looking to exclude just one. I saw the --database option but it states you need to list each table for every database you want to back up.

Any suggestions would be great.


You don’t have to specify each table in each database. With --database option the database names list is fair enough.

Also you can use regexp expression to specify which databases and tables should be matched in --include option.

thanks i realized i am dealing with this bug 569387

using the include option works for me. I’m going to look at upgrading innobackupex at some point
