Database Read Replicas

BETA: Extend WordPress with MySQL database read replica support for greater speed and scalability

  1. Set up your read replicas as per MySQL's instructions
  2. Download database-read-replicas and extract to wp-content/plugins
  3. Move db.php to wp-content or merge with your current wp-content/db.php file
  4. Edit db.php to pass your read replica hostnames as an array: $wpdb = new wpdb_replicas( DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD, DB_NAME, DB_HOST, array('readreplicahostname1','readreplicahostname2')); It uses the default settings for the username/password/database name/master hostname
  5. There is no need to activate this plugin
