Wrong OS user permissions mentioned in documentation

    Details

      Description

      In xtrabackup documentation it is mentioned that non root OS user required rwx permission on the data directory for taking a backup:

      https://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/LATEST/innobackupex/privileges.html#permissions-and-privileges-needed

      In tests, it can be seen that the backup works even without write permissions.
