Since it's so easy to set up pagodabox with multiple databases (for free), I thought I'd experiment with master/slave database setups.
I have good credentials for both MySQL databases. Everything should be fine and dandy.
The trouble is: At no point does Drupal create tables on the slave DB. I made a module to show me the credentials, and verify the connection, but the DB simply has no tables.
Should it? Is Drupal supposed to do this? Or do I need to do the initial replication myself?
