Support » Plugin: WordPress Migration Plugin DB & Files - WP Synchro » Incremential synchronization.

  • Resolved reskatorfr


    Hello, I have two servers: a local and an audience.
    Both are evolving on their own.
    I wish to synchronize (merge ?) each night:
    – transfer the new data and media from the public server to the local server;
    – then transfer the new data and medias from the local server to the public server.
    As the volume of data and media can become large, incremential synchronization would be the best solution.

    We dont support merging database data. But only migration of database data with overwrite.

    But it would be possible to synchronize/merge the media between the two installations, using the PRO version. You would make two setups. One to pull the media from the public server to local and then another one to push the local media to public server.

    You would also have to trigger it manually each time your want the sync to execute. We dont currently have support for cron’ish triggering.
    But it is on the backlog for a later release 🙂

    You can give it a try if you want. We have 14 day trial.

    Thank you for your reply.
    Yes, I know all this and I did some tests with the free version.
    (I was impressed by the efficiency!)

    The purpose of my message is to be a wish for a next release because that’s what I need …

    We currently have no plans for actual merging of database data. So i would not wait around for that 🙂

    But for the cron triggering of jobs. That will probably be in one the coming releases.
    You can sign up to our mailinglist for release announcements and insight in the coming releases.

    Thanks for your input.

    Thank you for your answer.

    Another bit problem :
    According to your explanation above concerning the media synchronization / merge: for it to work, it would be necessary to add an option for deleting media on target because according to the documentation, it is said that:
    “Files on target that don’t exist on source will be deleted.”

    Good point. I can see why it is not totally clear in documentation.

    The plugin actually supports both methods for uploads folder. It is a option that can be enabled/disabled. Standard is actually merge for uploads, because its faster.
    When disabled, it will delete the files on target that doesnt exist on source.
    For other location, such as plugin, theme, it always overwrites.

    I will get that corrected in documentation, so it is more clear.
    Thanks for pointing that out!

    Im doing a major overhaul of this logic as we speak, so the whole file synchronization will get a major improvement in next version. So the user can choose specific dirs/files to synchronize and the option to do it the merge-way or overwrite.
