We have two separate office networks and I want to make Confluence available on both Location. It will be a master slave configuration where data will be updated in one instance and the replicated instance will be kind read only.
I was wondering if it is possible by setting up replication for Mysql and copying the data directory?
I have gone through couple of answers in this forum and some articles where do they mention having backup (confluence XML backup) etc but those looks like more for disaster recovery where we want to restore. But in my case I want to have both running at the same time.
If you have two seperate office networks how are you going to replicate data between the two instances?
Our cluster offering is not a High Availability solution and does not have this data mirroring.
Why are you trying to set up a master slave configuration rather than just having the same instance available to both offices? How are the networks walled off from one another? Can you open whatever firewall you have for communication from an IP range from the remote office?
Basically two are separate networkd. The main intention is that, in case due to some network outage the master wiki become unavailable, people on other network should at least have something which will be the slave wiki.
As far as replication is concerned we can setup firewall/port forward to get it work across both networks.
I would suggest you to use cluster instance if you would like the data to be consistent on two servers. However if the network is good, you could just use one server on host it on only one location for easier adminsitration. You could get more information regarding cluster here.
