I’ve just installed percona-xtrabackup, and so for my first test I have Created a Directory (testdata) in my Home directory:
changed permissions on it
sudo chmod 777 testdata
and ran innobackupex
innobackupex --user=root --password=xxxx /home/user/testdata/
But I then get:
2015-03-26 16:37:54 7fee54ebd740 InnoDB: Operating system error number 13 in a file operation. InnoDB: The error means mysqld does not have the access rights to InnoDB: the directory.
Is this the
datatest directory, or my MySQL ‘/var/lib/mysql’ directory, or somewhere else?
