4.2.2 Backup Repository Parameters

The following parameters are supported in configuration files under the [mysqlbackup] group. The underscore characters in parameter names can be replaced with dashes and treated as synonyms, similar to mysqld parameters that use this same convention. (See Using Options on the Command Line in the MySQL Reference Manual for details.) The documentation typically lists the names with underscores, to match the output of the SHOW VARIABLES statement.

The parameters marked as having No Default value are specified through my.cnf files, command-line parameters, or can be obtained automatically once the mysqlbackup command establishes a database connection.
