I am receiving an error when I am trying to restore from a percona backup to my local mysql server.
Cannot overwrite file: /var/lib/mysql/ibdata1 at /usr/bin/innobackupex line 2128.
sudo innobackupex --copy-back --force-non-empty-directories /home/fazlan/Desktop/2015-05-25_09-59-31/
I had also shut down the mysql service prior to executing this command using
sudo service mysql stop
How do I fix this error?
I am using Ubuntu 14.04.
