I am trying to setup a High-Availability HTTP Load Balancer With HAProxy & Heartbeat
using the below links. I have all RHEL 5.4
servers hosted on VMWare.
This is the scenario, as given in the links as wells as my setup.
Shared IP: 192.168.0.120
Load Balancer 1
Load Balancer 2
Web Server 1
Web Server 2
I have followed all
the steps mentioned in the links religiously except the 2.2 here
, in which it is asking to configure the vhosts. I could not really understand :scratch:, what is to be placed in /etc/httpd/conf.d/vhosts.conf
file and in which
Due to this step only, I think I am failing in Failover test
given in Point 4.1 here
. I am able
to open the webpage by http://192.168.0.120/
which gives the content of Web Server 1 (http1.example.com).
But, when I try to shutdown the http service (to check failover), it does not
shows the contents of Web Server 2 (http2.example.com)
Although, I am able
to succeed in Failover Test 4.2
, in which shared IP 192.168.0.120
switches when I try to start/stop the any of the Load Balancers.
Waiting for your precious answers. Thanks in advance.
