I have this error in my syslog. I restored an older dump to solve this problem, after some reading. Now The errors in syslog are far less than before.

But still a few times an hour I get

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it should have been migrated to Database Administrators but is now too old to migrate. – Jenny D Apr 28 '15 at 8:11

There is inconsistency between the data files and the ib_logfile[0|1]-s. For me this can happen if I didn't run --apply-log when using innobackupex.

Try shut down the server, move the ib_logfiles into a different directory, and restart process. New logfiles will be created. (If it fails again, you can move back the original files)

I had this innodb is in the future message after resetting a broken slave using xtrabackup and could not work out why: I'd forgotten the --apply-log step - documentation now updated! – Lunc Jun 10 at 10:15
