Discovered this magnificent little tool just recently. It saves so much hassle especially when depending heavily on ACF. Thank you!

Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ':' in /xxxx/xxxxxxxx/public_html/dev/wp-content/plugins/database-sync/database-sync.php on line 36

I hope we have an update soon...

THANKS AND KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

Understated brilliance
By , for WP 4.0

I did significant research on plugins that would sync databases between my local development server and the live one. The one that everyone raves about is really expensive - $90 a year for a basic license.

When I saw the plugin Database Sync it seemed too simple, with too few reviews/users, for it to be a viable solution. But I gave it a go. And it turns out to be the simplest tool but one that does the job perfectly. I'm so happy I've found it. It's saved me a lot of money and/or hassle. Syncing databases is now, officially, easy!

Works Great!

This plugin will vastly improve my team's workflow. I'm successfully running it on our WP 4.0 installs. Thanks!

My experience
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plug-in works great. But it uses the new php 5.3 style for ternary operator which in turn causes wordpress to throw an error if you try to enable it on a <5.3 installation of php. But of cource anyone with a basic knowledge of php can realize and fix the problem for himself.
I have a syggestion to author as well. Since this plugin works so great, it would be nice to make it possible to add a php file to iit than can be called from cron, and does the sync work automatically. For example I have 2 sites, one of which is a backup of the other and i use it in case of a failure in the first site. Would be nice to have the option to sync the slave, say each hour, with the master.

Flawless

Hey There

Loving this plugin - no more arbitrary logging into PHP MyAdmin for simple keeping my local staging and production servers in sync - exactly what I needed.

I'ld really like to be able to set permissions with this plugin, to only allow pulls from remotes, basically so that we can set it up and allow the whole dev team to pull from the staging DB without the risk of pushing even being a possibility.

Is this possible or a future feature you have considered ?

Thanks for the greta plugin.

Kind Regards

Paul
