Master Slave database support

Post by CarpCharacin » Sat Sep 10, 2016 10:51 pm

Dies phpbb 3.1 or 3.2 have master slave database support for large forums? Are there any plans for it in 3.3? It is a very important feature for large forums that run a cluster of servers.

With master slave database support, a forum can run multiple database servers.

Out of interest - how big a board are you running?

Mine isn't that large. I don't need it.

There is many ways of running a db cluster. Thats why I asked, to know what is your use case.

It will work in certain configurations. The databases backing the *.phpbb.com sites are part of a cluster with a master/slave configuration. Certain configurations will not work though, such as those using different auto_increment values: https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-7215
