Cloning databases


In addition to replicating between sandboxes, we can also clone a database, if it is of version 8.0.17+ and meets the prerequisites.

Every sandbox using version 8.0.17 or later will also have a script named clone_from, which works like replicate_from.

For example, this command will clone from a master-slave sandbox into a single sandbox:

$ ~/sandboxes/msb_8_0_17/clone_from rsandbox_8_0_17
 Installing clone plugin in recipient sandbox
 Installing clone plugin in donor sandbox
 Cloning from rsandbox_8_0_17/master
 Giving time to cloned server to restart
