I successfully created a full backup with innobackupex.
It created some frm ibd and other files.
- Is it possible to create an output that is same as an export created by phpmyadmin ? A dump?
Or xtra backup only creates binary files in percona format ?
- I want to store some of the backups in my local machine. Is it possible to create a full backup inside 1 file.
So I can download that file rather than whole folder.
Xtrabackup is for creating binary backups. If you want a logical backup (like you are creating from phpMyAdmin), then you will want to use mysqldump. You may however archive/compress the backup that Xtrabackup made into a single file using tar:
cmd> tar cvzf my-backup.tar.gz /path/to/backup
Then to open/uncompress the archive after downloading it to your computer:
cmd> tar -xvf my-backup.tar.gz
Thank you very much scott.
