How do I add a MySQL instance to the CDP Server?
First we assume that you have a MySQL database running on a client that you want to backup. You will need to enable the MySQL addon for the client in the CDP web interface. You can do this by clicking on the "Hosts" tab, selecting the host with the MySQL instance, then changing the options to enable MySQL backups.
Now we need to allow the CDP server to see the MySQL database on the client. To do this, in the CDP web interface, click on the MySQL tab. Enter a description for your MySQL database along with your username and password. Now choose a connection type, either Host / IP or Socket File. If you do not know the "Host", "Port", or "Socket File" they can be found in the my.cnf file that is usually located in /etc/mysql/.
Once you have entered the necessary information, click add and your CDP server should connect to your MySQL database. You can now browse your MySQL tables and choose which you would like to backup.
