SSH trust is still required even if you are backing up a MySQL server that is on the same host as XBM.

You should use the same process as if "localhost" was a hostname of any other host on the network.

Networking based technology like SSH and Netcat will still be utilized, however, since the machine is going to be the same, no traffic will go over a real network, so it will be extremely fast.

I hope this answers your question.

Best,
Lachlan
