Support » Plugin: Database Sync » export and import, no syncing though

  • Hi,

    Perhaps I’m not understanding correctly what this plugin does, but in my opinion it does not sync anything.

    The way it works for me is that I can push my local database to my staging site, but I still need to run the Search and Replace DB script twice for both path and URL.

    I like the fact that I don’t have to go to PHP MyAdmin to do an export and then to go to the staging site to do an import, but to call this a database sync is a bit too much in my opinion, unless I am missing something?

    If you configure the DB with your live site URL, you can override the WP_SITEURL constant in your wp-config.php in your local environment

    That way you can directly copy the DB between local and remote without making any changes.

    It’s not only the Site URL that needs changing though, it’s also the PATH.

    And although I did notice the link to the other Gist, that one only targets the posts table and the comments. I have quite a few more tables where both URL and PATH needs changing.

    So we agree then that this plugin does in fact not sync anything? đŸ˜‰
