    Hi all, firstly, big thanks to the developers of ispconfig 3, been great so far

    Is it possible in a multi-server setup to have each server configuration mirrored to one backup server?

    e.g. consider this setup of servers:
    - cp (main ispconfig interface)
    - mail (handling all email)
    - web1 (web sites & db)
    - web2 (web sites & db)

    The 'cp' server controls all the other servers.

    Could we then have a 'mirror' backup server, where all configuration is stored.
    So 'mirror' has details of cp, mail, web1, and web2 servers.

    Basically this mirror would be a very simple backup server, that 'could' if needed run everything by itself (mail, web, db)

    In the ispconfig admin panel, I can only see the option of assigning one server to be a mirror of one other.

    Can we do one-to-many?

    Not in the current versions. With ISPConfig you can mirror only one to one.

    Would this be technically possible though, in theory?

    I don't mind jumping into the code and making a patch for this feature.
    e.g. if the 'mirror_server_id' field in the server table is the one needed, maybe turn this field into a comma separated list, and then modify the code to loop through each mirror server when running each job.

    Bump - Is this available in the latest versions of ISPconfig yet?

    Or on the horizon?
