Configure Master and Slave MySQL Replication On Linux

Configure Master and Slave MySQL Replication On Linux

You need two machines for this setup one for Master and another for a slave. I will install the MySQL 5.7 version. you can configure master-slave replication and also show the master configuration in my.cnf file. we can also check MySQL replication status.

This also provides you database high availability for your application if one goes down, data can be fetched from another slave instances.

Master IP:

Slave IP:

You can find another version from the official site of MySql.

you have to install on MySQL both servers and the version should be the same. Create a repo file in vim /etc/yum.repos.d/mysql.repo

Master Configuration

Install MySQL server using yum install mysql mysql-server -y

I will put a few basic and required configuration under my.cnf file. The server-id should not be the same.

Put these code in this file vim /etc/my.cnf and under [mysqld] section.

server-id = 1
relay-log = /var/lib/mysql/mysql-relay-bin
relay-log-index = /var/lib/mysql/mysql-relay-bin.index
log-error = /var/lib/mysql/mysql.err
master-info-file = /var/lib/mysql/
relay-log-info-file = /var/lib/mysql/
log-bin = /var/lib/mysql/mysql-bin

After putting these code, restart the service 

systemctl restart mysqld

Now grant replication on slave users for any IP address means ‘%’. we need to give the slave IP.

GRANT REPLICATION SLAVE ON *.* TO 'slave_user'@'slave_ip' IDENTIFIED BY 'F!fXkv!og26@';

Please note down the file name mysql-bin.000002 and position 417.

Check that the user must be created using the below command. 

select user,host from mysql.user;
