      Description

      1. Installed XtraBackup from percona-xtrabackup-2.4.12-Linux-x86_64.libgcrypt20.tar.gz.
      2. Ran backup using the option --keyring-file-data. The backup command gave an error:
        180808 19:30:11 Added plugin 'keyring_file.so' to load list.
        Can't open shared library '/mnt/workspace/percona-xtrabackup-2.4-binary-tarball/label_exp/ubuntu-xenial-64bit/TARGET/xtrabackup-build.jcms3P/percona-xtrabackup-2.4.12-Linux-x86_64/lib/plugin/keyring_file.so' (errno: 2, cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
        

        The backup command was not able to locate the keyring_file.so plugin.

      3. There is a separate parameter xtrabackup-plugin-dir, which gives the plugin location, however this parameter is not mentioned in the XtraBackup documentation:
        https://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/LATEST/advanced/encrypted_innodb_tablespace_backups.html
        https://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/LATEST/xtrabackup_bin/xbk_option_reference.html

      Please add the parameter description of xtrabackup-plugin-dir in the XtraBackup documentation.
