I have a production database and a development database.

I want to daily sync the development database to match the production database.

They are both on two different servers. (I could put them on the same server if that makes it possible, but would rather not.)

Is there some type of package I can create and run that will copy (without taking down the production server) the database from production to development (I can take it down), to update everything?

To create the development initially, I couldn't do an import, because it errored on a permission. So I did a backup copy. Then I moved that to my development server and did a restore. I don't want to have to do that everyday, it's too tedious and moving that file took 21 minutes.
