Configuring Mysql Asynchronous Replication

In this exercise, we will use one master and one slave. The addresses are as follow:



1. Make sure mysql-server is installed in both machines

2. In master, check the user_id

$ mysql -u root -p

mysql> show variables like 'server_id';

3. In master, create a user for replication

mysql> create user replicator@'%' identified with 'mysql_native_password' by 'mypassword';

3. In master, grant the user a privilege of slave replication

mysql> grant replication slave on *.* to replicator@'%';

4. In slave, change the server_id to a number different from the master

$ mysql -u root -p

mysql> set global variable server_id = 20;

5. Configure slave with the server's details

mysql> change master to master_host='',master_user='replicator',master_password='mypassword';

6.  Start slave

mysql> start replica;

7. Check slave status. Make sure slave_io and slave_sql are in running state.

mysql> show slave status\G

8. Test the setup. Create database, add table and some data into master, and check if the data gets replicated to slave.
