You can Try features module to achieve the Database settings.
You can export content types, views and other settings to a feature and
enable it as a module.
For other settings used by other modules, you can use Strongarm module for
getting these tiny settings.

Lastly, in case you want content like nodes, taxonomy terms as well to get
it shared, then you can use backup and migrate module to take backup of
complete Database and then share them across via mail of directly adding in
