Hello

I have 2 computers that I work on. I need to keep these computers in synch. I use mysql database version 5.0. What is the easiest way to keep these 2 databases in sync. what files would i need to copy from one machine to another? Is there something else i could do?

thanks

are you planning on writing to both servers?

If you are you could set up master - master replication - that way you wouldn't have to worry about copying files anywhere mysql would handle it all.

alternatively if you're only writing to one of them you could use master - slave replication

hi, i dont thinki i worded my question very well. Neither of the machines are servers, they are both simply development machines that i work on. I work on one machine in the day and one machine at night. Any changes i make to one database in the day i would like to propagate to the machine i use in the evening. The computers are not connected via a network in any way so i dont think i can use replication as shown in the links upi recommend.
thanks

in that case use mysqldump to dump the database and then restore it
