Requirements and Recommendations
Regarding MySQL, the following requirements must be fulfilled:
- The Backup Agent must be installed on the MySQL server.
- A temporary directory must be created on the server, therefore we recommend to create it on the local disk after checking there’s enough free space left for the required activities.
- MySQL user must have "ALL PRIVILEGES" in order to allow the Agent to perform the backup procedure.
Note: the database "information_schema" is a virtual database of the system that contains the information regarding the databases hosted in the MySQL instance. This DB is in read-only mode and, therefore, cannot be saved.
