The destination server must be running.
Make sure that the required parameters for connecting to the server (port number, socket name, etc.) are provided as command-line options for mysqlbackup, or are specified in the
[client]section of a default file.
The destination server must be using the same page size that was used on the server on which the backup was made.
The innodb_file_per_table option must be enabled on the destination server.
The tables being restored must not exist on the destination server.
A restore fails if the InnoDB file format of a per-table data file (
.ibdfile) to be restored does not match the value of the
innodb_file_formatsystem variable on the destination server. In that case, use the
--forceoption with the restore commands to change temporarily the value of
innodb_file_formaton the server, in order to allow restores of per-table data files regardless of their format.
When restoring a single-file backup created with the option
the folder specified with
--backup-dir, besides holding
temporary output, status files, and metadata, is also used for
extracting temporarily all the tables in the backup and for
apply-log operation to
make the data up-to-date before restoring them to the server's
Selected tables can be restored from a backup created with
tablespaces (TTS) using the
--exclude-tables options. The
following command restores all tables in the
“sales” database from the backup, but excludes the
table with the name “hardware” :
Example 5.7 Restoring Selected Tables from a TTS Image Backup
mysqlbackup --socket=/tmp/restoreserver.sock --datadir=/logs/restoreserverdata --backup-dir=/logs/backup \ --include-tables="^sales\." --exclude-tables="^sales\.hardware$" copy-back-and-apply-log
This following commands rename a table when restoring it from a
TTS Backup by using the
Example 5.8 Restoring and Renaming a Table from a TTS Backup
# Using fully qualified table names: mysqlbackup --socket=/tmp/restoreserver.sock --datadir=/logs/restoreserverdata \ --backup-dir=/BackupDirTemp --backup-image=/home/dbadmin/backups/tts-backup.mbi \ --include-tables="^sales\.cars" --rename="sales.cars to sales.autos" copy-back-and-apply-log # It works the same if database names are omitted in the argument for --rename: mysqlbackup --socket=/tmp/restoreserver.sock --datadir=/logs/restoreserverdata \ --backup-dir=/BackupDirTemp --backup-image=/home/dbadmin/backups/tts-backup.mbi \ --include-tables="^sales\.cars" --rename="cars to autos" copy-back-and-apply-log
