How to Back Up Selected MySQL Databases

I recently had to do a backup of a 30 very large databases within a MySQL instance that had a total of 60+ databases.  I did NOT want to back up the other databases. In fact, the other databases had very large tables in them and I had very little disk space, so I could not afford to back them up. In this post I will share what I learned.

I’ve simplified the problem to illustrate the idea.  My goal in this post is to backup one database when an instance has many, with mixed InnoDB and MyIsam tables.

  • I have 3 databases called dbtest1, dbtest2, and dbtest3, in one instance of MySQL .  I only want to back up  the tables in database dbtest2

  • Each database has one InnoDB and one MyISAM table
  • The InnoDB tables are quite large, and I have limited disk space …

Installing MySQL Enterprise Backup to Generic Linux

The MySQL Enterprise Backup is a very powerful backup tool from MySQL. By using MEB, you can always take a hot and fast backup of all your MySQL Databases. I've been using it in Oracle Linux platform but just recently I have this need to use it in our Ubuntu production servers. I've tried installing it to Ubuntu 11.04 and have no problem at all. Here's what you need to do to get this done.

1. Download the files from http://edelivery.oracle.com. You need to have an account to download one.
2. Transfer it to the server using SCP or WinSCP if you are using windows or any other type of file transfer client.
3. SSH to your server and login as root.
4. Unzip the file to your preferred location. I recommend to use the default location the MEB is using at /opt/mysql/ directory.
5. Edit ~/.bashrc and add below lines

export PATH=/opt/mysql/meb-3.7:$PATH
6. execute source ~/.bashrc …

5 Steps to an Enterprise Backup

I’d like to focus this blog on using MySQL in the Enterprise and kickoff with a series of posts on “Enterprise Backup” building on the new features in both MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB) and MySQL Enterprise Monitor (MEM).  The new features in MEB 3.6 provide the capabilities to stream backups directly to another server, interface with backup media management software, and take advantage of tape encryption.  MEM 2.3.5 now has a Backup Advisor that helps monitor your backups.  In this and a subsequent  blog post, I’ll go through a progression of backups building up on a fairly straightforward vanilla single file backup with MEB as follows:

  • Backing up to a Single File
  • Add streaming to your Single File backup
  • Stream your Single File Backup to a Media Management System
  • Encrypt your Backup Tapes using your Media Management System
  • Monitoring your Backup with MySQL …
