I do run the following command to get the mysql encoded db name if it contains some special character.

This works fine for MySQL 5.5 or lower versions

Server version: 5.5.31-0ubuntu0.12.04.2-log (Ubuntu)

mysql> SELECT BINARY(CAST('db-name' AS CHAR CHARACTER SET FILENAME));
+--------------------------------------------------------+
| BINARY(CAST('db-name' AS CHAR CHARACTER SET FILENAME)) |
+--------------------------------------------------------+
| db@002dname |
+--------------------------------------------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

In MySQL 5.6, The above command will not give the encrypt db name.


Server version: 5.6.10-log MySQL Community Server (GPL)

mysql> SELECT BINARY(CAST('db-name' AS CHAR CHARACTER SET FILENAME));
+--------------------------------------------------------+
| BINARY(CAST('db-name' AS CHAR CHARACTER SET FILENAME)) |
+--------------------------------------------------------+
| db-name |
+--------------------------------------------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)


Any body has idea how to get the encoded db name in mysql 5.6.

There was bug with XtraBackup/MEB which does not do the backup of the database or tables if it contains the special character. If we pass the encoded db name/table names then backup works fine .

However with mysql 5.6 it do the backup of database/tables without passing the encoded db name/tables but the backup dir creates the database directory as encoded name. I would like to how to get the encoded db name in mysql 5.6
