You can configure Replication as ALL or Selective. I have done selective where I select few DBs to Replicate.
Once you are done you need to add the lines below in the my.cnf file.

# ***** Added Lines here ****
# ***** Till Here ****

Here are Ignoring all the DBs for Replication except the two above.

Go to /opt/lampp/etc/my.cnf

Once you restart XAMPP, you can see that Mysql Server is started as Master.

Next Lets Create a Replication user and give it privileges as the slave needs this information to connect to the Master.

I have given root but you can give any username you want.

Now we need to start SLAVE I/O and Sql Threads.

They are right under “Control Slave” as below

Now you can see the threads running.

NOTE: If you face any issues getting the threads started then please check logs. In my case IO Thread was not starting. When I checked the log I found that I had two server-id’s in the my.cnf file. Also sometimes you will get IO error due to max_allowed_packet as well, as this is by default set to 1MB, which needs to be around 16MB.

Now we can see all the DBs in Replication Mode. Now any Updates to Master will reflect on the slave.
