Is it possible to set up a MySQL master-slave replication for a single database to a slave server with multiple (shared) databases

Hi,

I have a setup with currently two dedicated servers for the MySQL database.
One is the production server with the MySQL database which is accessed for read/ write transactions.
There is a second server that acts as a hot-standby and is in slave replication from this production server.

I would now like to add another slave server on a third dedicated server, but that MySQL server already has databases installed. The replicated database will be used for read-only analytics purpose and I want it separate so heavy analytics queries don't affect the production environment.

My question is, can I set up slave replication from the master MySQL server to this third MySQL server for just one database?

Thanks

yes,
The connection is initiated from the one configured as a slave to the master.
The chain can be master-slave-slave
master slave (the slave instance will be the master for the second slave)


Have you considered having a master-master setup this way the switch/functionality could be preserved/loadbalanced


Make sure server IDs are unique.

backup/restore current state of the DB onto the new slave

replicate-do-db=<dbname> to select which DB this slave will be replicating.

if you do a master-slave/master - slave setup, on the middle server you would need to record the updates it receives so they are binlogged
log-slave-updates on the slave/master system.
