MySQL Replication

Submitted by cafuego on 5 June, 2008 - 14:50

I found myself with some spare time the other day and decided that my current mysql backup strategy is not the best in the world. The mysql server is a virtual machine in a Brisbane datacenter and it's backed up via a script that calls mysqldump on each installed database and dumps the content to (compressed) files. These files then get sucked down to Melbourne via rdiff-backup.

This is fine in principle, but does mean it's possible for me to lose 24 hours worth of data due to an accidental 'DROP table' query.

I spent this afternoon making this map of car parking options for next week's OSIA meeting, but couldn't get it to display on the OSIA website. Grrr.  So instead - I'm adding the information here, along with the map I did. I've also attached the inkscape SVG.

When: 7pm Thursday 17 April
Where: Innovation@257, Level One, Emirates House, 257 Collins Street, Melbourne
What: Melbourne OSV/OSIA Meeting
