In phpMyAdmin there is a tab for configuring Replication and one for Synchronization.
- What is the difference between Replication and Synchronization?
- When do you should use the one or the other?
After some digging, the answer in the MySQL/phpMyAdmin context is as follows:
Replication is used to describe the event of copying data. Synchronization is continuous (at least one way) replication that maintains consistency between multiple data sources.
