Best method to sync Managed MySQL to MySQL on a Droplet

Hi, I was hoping to use log shipping to sync a DB hosted on Managed MySQL to a DB on MySQL installed on a Droplet. Can I do this and is there any documentation, as I can’t seem to see any. If I can’t sync using log shipping what do you recommend to sync at least once a day? Thanks, David

Unfortunately, the managed DBs won’t have any such access or options. If we could change basic settings such as key buffers etc, we’d be happy already.

In your case, it seems like it would be easier to schedule a CRON that dumps your Droplet’s DB to an .sql file, then import it into the manage dDB instance.

You should have control over all of that.
