( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi,

I'm very new to database "stuff" so this is the best place I know to ask this (boy does that sound negative! ;-)).
Right now I'm figuring out the basics with mySQL but I will probably have to use a non-open source DB when this project takes off ... I just hope that doesn't mean I'll have to start learning all over again.

Here's the deal:
I'm working with 2 databases. They are seperated for security reasons.
One is on a private intranet database. It's constantly changing.
The other is online and part of a website where people can see what's happening.

The problem is that I need to synchronize the online database every x minutes and I have no idea how to do this :-(

Are there any tricks (Perl or SQL) to get the changed parts of a database so I don't need to copy the whole thing (which would be impossible)?
Should I just check EVERY item in it with a hash of the data that was in it last time?

Any links to good database information sites are appreciated because I'm just getting into it and I like to learn as much as possible, as fast as possible ;-)

thanks!
CBAS

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
