I've just installed a copy of
Percona xtrabackup onto my Debian (jessie) server, but when I run it it says that it is:
innobackupex version 2.3.5 based on MySQL server 5.6.24 Linux (x86_64) (revision id: 45cda89)
But I am using MySQL 5.5. Is this the correct version of innobackupex to use with my databases, and if not which version should I use? The documentation isn't very clear.
I installed it using the following process:
apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 1C4CBDCDCD2EFD2A sudo pico /etc/apt/sources.list then add the following two lines deb http://repo.percona.com/apt jessie main deb-src http://repo.percona.com/apt jessie main apt-get update apt-get install percona-xtrabackup
