Restoring Database from Logical Backup

Last updated: 2020-12-23 09:31:54

    Overview

    Note:

    To save storage capacity, physical and logical backups in TencentDB for MySQL will be compressed with qpress and then packed with xbstream offered by Percona.

    TencentDB for MySQL supports logical backup. In the console, you can manually create logical backup files and download the logical backup files of an entire instance or specified databases or tables. This document describes how to manually restore data from logical backup files.

    Directions

    Step 1. Download the backup file

    1. Log in to the TencentDB for MySQL console. In the instance list, click the instance ID/name or Manage in the Operation column to access the instance management page.
    2. On the instance management page, click Backup and Restore > Data Backup List, locate the backup file to download, and click Download in the Operation column.
    3. In the pop-up dialog window, copy the download URL. Log in to a (Linux) CVM instance in the same VPC as the TencentDB instance, and run the wget command to download over the private network for higher speed.

      Note:

      • You can also click Download to download it directly, which may take longer.
      • wget command format: wget -c 'backup file download address' -O custom filename.xb
      Example:
      wget -c 'https://mysql-database-backup-bj-118.cos.ap-beijing.myqcloud.com/12427%2Fmysql%2F42d-11ea-b887-6c0b82b%2Fdata%2Fautomatic-delete%2F2019-11-28%2Fautomatic%2Fxtrabackup%2Fbk_204_10385%2Fcdb-1pe7bexs_backup_20191128044644.xb?sign=q-sign-algorithm%3Dsha1%26q-ak%3D1%26q-sign-time%3D1574269%3B1575417469%26q-key-time%3D1575374269%3B1517469%26q-header-list%3D%26q-url-param-list%3D%26q-signature%3Dfb8fad13c4ed&response-content-disposition=attachment%3Bfilename%3D%2141731_backup_20191128044644.xb%22&response-content-type=application%2Foctet-stream' -O test0.xb

    Step 2. Unpack the backup file

    Unpack the backup file with xbstream.

    Note:

    xbstream can be downloaded at Percona's official website. Please select Percona XtraBackup 2.4.6 or later. For more information on installation, please see Percona XtraBackup 2.4.

    xbstream -x < test0.xb

    Note:

    Replace test0.xb with your backup file.

    The unpacking result is as shown below:

    Step 3. Decompress the backup file

    1. Download qpress by running the following command:
      wget http://www.quicklz.com/qpress-11-linux-x64.tar

      Note:

      If an error is displayed during the wget download, you can go to QuickLZ's official website to download qpress locally and upload it to the Linux CVM instance. For more information, please see Uploading Files via SCP to a Linux CVM from Linux.

    2. Extract the qpress binary files by running the following command:
      tar -xf qpress-11-linux-x64.tar -C /usr/local/bin
      source /etc/profile
    3. Decompress the backup file with qpress.
      qpress -d cdb-jp0zua5k_backup_20191202182218.sql.qp .

      Note:

      Find the backup file with .sql.qp extension by decompression time and replace cdb-jp0zua5k_backup_20191202182218 with its filename.

      The decompressing result is as shown below:

    Step 4. Import the backup file into the target database

    Import the .sql file into the target database by running the following command:

    mysql -uroot -P3306 -h127.0.0.1 -p < cdb-jp0zua5k_backup_20191202182218.sql

    Note:

    • This document takes importing into a local MySQL instance with port 3306 as an example. You can replace it as needed.
    • Replace cdb-jp0zua5k_backup_20191202182218.sql with the .sql file extracted by qpress.
