I recently discovered that the master db in a setup I'm running became corrupted. The slave was getting all of the data correctly so I have a solid backup. What I'd like to do is use replication to restore the master from the slave. Most solutions I've seen on the internet say basically "mysqldump your data and then load it in", but I thought making proper use of replication would be more elegant. I saw this link in the MySQL docs, but wasn't sure if it was correct: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-enterprise-backup/3.6/en/advanced.master.html
I'm running MySQL 5.5 on Ubuntu 14.04 with InnoDB tables.
