Configuring Slony Replication v2.2.10

On a CentOS and Debian host, the configuration file (slony-replication.ini) is located in the /etc/edb/slony-replication<xx> directory. Use the configuration file to specify connection information for the master and standby nodes.

On a Windows host, the configuration files are named master.conf.sample and slave.conf.sample. They are located in the /etc directory under the EDB Postgres Advanced Server installation. Before configuring Slony Replication, you must rename the configuration files to master.conf and slave.conf.

For information about configuring a Slony Replication environment, please refer to the Slony official project documentation.

After specifying configuration options, you must start the Slony Replication service on all nodes of the replication environment. For detailed information about controlling a service, see EDB Advanced Server Installation Guide at the EDB website.

After installing, configuring, and starting the Slony Replication on a Linux system, you must manually configure your system to autostart the service when your system reboots.

To configure a service to autostart on a Linux system, open a command line, assume superuser privileges, and enter the following command.

On a Redhat-compatible Linux system:

/sbin/chkconfig service_name on

Where service_name specifies the name of the service.

On a Debian-compatible Linux system, use the command:

/usr/sbin/update-rc.d service_name enable

Where service_name specifies the name of the service.

Please note that on a Windows system, the Slony Replication service is configured to autostart by default; you can use the Service Properties dialog to control the service startup type.
