sh: 1: xtrabackup_55: not found

Hello I installed Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS on a fresh box. This automatically also installed MySQL 5.5.29.

I installed percona-xtrabackup-2.0.6-521.tar.gz and put the files in /usr/bin.

But innobackupex is giving an error: “sh: 1: xtrabackup_55: not found”

david@server1:/usr/bin$ sudo innobackupex --user=root --password=123 /home/david/dbb/

innobackupex: fatal error: no ‘mysqld’ group in MySQL options

The files are present and executable:

david@server1:/usr/bin$ ls -l grep inno*
ls: cannot access grep: No such file or directory
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 108823 Mar 19 14:24 innobackupex

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 12699861 Mar 19 14:15 xtrabackup_55

Path is correct:

david@server1:/usr/bin$ echo $PATH
/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin :/usr/games

I get the same results if I run

sudo innobackupex 
sudo ./innobackupex 

Any ideas?

Maybe the problem is not related but I would like to start debugging this error message:

innobackupex: fatal error: no ‘mysqld’ group in MySQL options

Where is your my.cnf located? Can you share it?
