Question

Optimal way to replicate a MANAGED DO MYSQL DB to other DBs, such as localhost or any other DB with a connection

I want to mirror my main database to my localhost so I have similar data throughout my development environment. Curious what the best way to do that with a managed DB, because I don’t have access to SSH so i can’t follow some of the replication tutorials out there.

Hi there,

What you could do is to follow the steps here on how to export and import a collection from MongoDB:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-import-and-export-a-mongodb-database-on-ubuntu-20-04

The tutorial is not specifically for a managed cluster, but you can run the mongoexport command as described there, just specify the cluster connection details with --uri "cluster-connection-string" flag.

For an example on how to use MongoDB CLI tools with a managed cluster, you can take a look that eh documentation here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/databases/mongodb/how-to/import-collections/

Hope that this helps!

Best,

Bobby
