Hi I am trying to setup a data replication server.
I am using MariaDB and phpMyAdmin to interface with the 2 DB’s
I have set up my master with adding the following configuration to my my.ini file
server-id=691391 log_bin=mysql-bin log_error=mysql-bin.err binlog_do_db=mytestdb
I have then restarted the MySQL server so that phpMyAdmin now shows that it is set up correctly as a master as seen in the screenshot below:
I have then logged into my slave DB with phpMyAdmin and tried to connect it as a slave. When I enter in the details of the slave user that I have already created, I get the error message on the slave
Unable to read master log position. Possible privilege problem on master
Does anyone know what the issue could be here as I cant seem to work it out.
You need to give privileges to replicate the Master.
Below is the example.
in Master DB to give privileges.
CREATE USER 'replication_User'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'password'; GRANT REPLICATION SLAVE ON *.* TO 'replication_User'@'%'; flush privileges;
Run below command on slave db to see master status.
SHOW MASTER STATUSG;
Run below command on Master to see slave status.
SHOW SLAVE STATUSG;
