This extension syncs raw database tables and selected files of directories between two TYPO3 installations.

This can be used to sync between a "content master" system, where editors work, and a "production" system which does not have a TYPO3 backend available. Both systems are connected via SSH.

This extension is - by design - very simplistic, and for other use-cases we recommend using Workspaces for publishing processes or in2publish as a more sophisticated solution.


  • MySQL is used as RDBMS and the mysqldump and mysql binaries must be available in the $PATH for PHP
  • A SSH Connection to Remote Node by Key Authentication (can be configured via .ssh/config)
  • helhum/typo3_console on target and source node must be available

Extension Configuration

  • Configure Database Tables and Files to sync
  • Configure your Source- and Target Node (TYPO3 Instances)
