This post is here because of Percona Xtrabackup latest version 8.0.1. is not supporting mysql_config_editor — MySQL Configuration Utility for MySQL 8.X+ Version. Moreover, how this most and widely used important feature(MySQL config editor.) of MySQL is not support by Percona XtraBackup 8.0.1 ? unbelievable
Here, I used Percona Xtrabackup for on-line and off-line backups everyday for Database systems. In addition, Xtrabackup has unique and excellent backup process with TAR and Xbsteam compression although all this(mysql-config-editor) useful feature is missing in it. After discontinue with Innobackupx perl script feature challenges to deal with latest Version Percona XtraBackup 8.0.1.
Everyone knows how security of Data this days and with Xtrabackup, we have to print our Passwords with username which is highly vulnerable and risky.So I hope this post will be catch eyes that I feel like handicap without this feature in today’s Data world.
I need to know from community if you have any similar option or alternative of mysql-config-editor then please share to me on this post because I really have to need to know that how I kept my password hide ?Your suggestions will help to finding out alternative for mysql-config-editor.
