This section describes how to configure the different types of replication available in MySQL and includes the setup and configuration required for a replication environment, including step-by-step instructions for creating a new replication environment. The major components of this section are:
For a guide to setting up two or more servers for replication using binary log file positions, Section 18.1.2, “Setting Up Binary Log File Position Based Replication”, deals with the configuration of the servers and provides methods for copying data between the master and slaves.
For a guide to setting up two or more servers for replication using GTID transactions, Section 18.1.3, “Replication with Global Transaction Identifiers”, deals with the configuration of the servers.
Events in the binary log are recorded using a number of formats. These are referred to as statement-based replication (SBR) or row-based replication (RBR). A third type, mixed-format replication (MIXED), uses SBR or RBR replication automatically to take advantage of the benefits of both SBR and RBR formats when appropriate. The different formats are discussed in Section 18.2.1, “Replication Formats”.
Detailed information on the different configuration options and variables that apply to replication is provided in Section 18.1.6, “Replication and Binary Logging Options and Variables”.
Once started, the replication process should require little administration or monitoring. However, for advice on common tasks that you may want to execute, see Section 18.1.7, “Common Replication Administration Tasks”.
