    Replicant module released Link to this post

    The team working on the Govt.nz beta have just released a module to help transfer databases between environments.
    Once installed and configured replicant will allow you to select an environment to fetch a database from and restore it to a different environment.

    Installation is as simple as running the following from your site directory:

    composer require govtnz/replicant dev-master

    The GitHub repository can be found here: https://github.com/GOVTNZ/replicant

    Great to see contributions coming out! Though always been sceptical at CMS direct access to the full database in terms of security.

    Related to that, if you want to translate information across environments https://github.com/silverstripe/sspak can be useful. More secure, handles assets as well.

    You would need to ensure you have shell access in oder to use sspak too of course
