This is the User's Guide for the MySQL Enterprise Backup product, the successor to the InnoDB Hot Backup product. This manual describes the procedures to back up and restore MySQL databases. It covers techniques for minimizing time and storage overhead during backups, and to keep the database available during backup operations. It illustrates the features and syntax of the mysqlbackup command;, for example, how to back up selected databases or tables, how to back up only the changes since a previous backup, and how to transfer the backup data efficiently to a different server.
The 3.6 release contains major new features and changes to command syntax. If you were a user of MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.5, see Appendix B, Compatibility Information for MySQL Enterprise Backup Releases and InnoDB Hot Backup and Section D.2, “Changes in MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.6.0 (2011-07-01)” for information about the changes.
