You need MySQL replication.

Here is the official documentation https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/replication.html

I like to use step by step guides, so here's a more simple explanation: http://www.clusterdb.com/mysql-cluster/get-mysql-replication-up-and-running-in-5-minutes

Those docs should work for MySQL 5.X and 8.X.
