    i have an extra computer just sitting and i need a project so i was wanting to create a backup/ mirror server. so a complete copy of my main server.

    i was thinking that if there was a problem with the main server that the backup/mirror server could take over and keep the sites up and running.

    i have looked and did not see anything it there a howto for ubuntu 10.04 for this?

    thanks

    is there a howto on this and can this be used on the local machine on a spare drive?


    can this be run on 3 boxes instead of 4

    Load Balancer 1
    Web Server 1
    Web Server 2

    also from my understanding Debian and ubuntu are very close to each other could i use ubuntu for this setup?

    We have rsync and MySQL replication tutorials here on HowtoForge. You can rsync files to a local drive.


    Yes, but this leaves you with a single point of failure (if the load balancer fails you've gained nothing).

    That should work.
