I have a client who is interested in having a staging server pushing the data to the production server.

I did some research on the silverstripe api and found some interesting things but don't really know where to start to acehive this.

1st I found documentation about the following class :synchronise/Synchronised.php at

This looks like what I want to achieve but the php page is not into silverstripe 2.3.3, only in 2.3.1. But I wouldn't know where to start with it.

I also fount the static-publisher class but i'm not sure of what it does really. It seems to only synchronize cache files. what If I have dynamic data onto the production server ?

All this seems not clear to me, any guidance would be really appreciated.

Thanks a lot

Hi inkubux, welcome to the community.

I asked a similar question a while ago but I did not follow it up.

Would be good to hear if someone has done this with SS.

Are you trying to replicate the Silverstripe files as well as the database info or only the Database info?

The reason I ask is that MySQL can handle the database replication on it's own:


If you're on a *nix system, you could look at rsync:


I'm looking at the MySQL solution because in my case I set up the clients site where they can't modify the core files and all changes are handled through the CMS. So I really only need to synch the databases and alternately any Assets files they added.
