I can’t seem to get ‘yum install percona-xtrabackup’ to install the 5.5 and 5.6 xtrabackup binaries. I’ve upgrade MySQL to 5.5.34 via the remi repository, and need xtrabackup_55 to create/restore backups. Does anyone have any suggestions for properly installing these?
Please follow this http://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/2.1/installation/yum_repo.html
Sorry, I should have been more explicit. I have installed xtrabackup via the yum repo, but it only results in one binary which states it’s based on MySQL server 5.6.17 where I have 5.5.34 installed. The documentation specifically states to use the _55 version for MySQL 5.5, but that binary isn’t being installed via yum.
Here’s a list of the xtrabackup binaries installed by yum
ls -l /usr/bin/ | grep xtraback
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 13015296 Jun 12 03:06 xtrabackup
Here’s the version details of the binary
xtrabackup version 2.2.3 based on MySQL server 5.6.17 Linux (x86_64) (revision id: )
The question is how does one get the xtrabackup_55 binary installed?
