engine-backup is not really relevant to the current discussion - it can
assist in the manual process that needs to be done, but it does not solve
the issues with versions. So if the problem was with some conf file not
copied, engine-backup might help, but if the problem is incompatibility
between database and code, it won't.

engine-backup does not have much documentation currently - see its
'--help', also copied to [1].
