    I'm following the HOWTO for "Setting Up A High-Availability Load Balancer (With Failover And Session Support) With HAProxy/Keepalived On Debian Lenny" and I have one quick question.

    How does one get the slave Apache server to mirror the master Apache server so that, on failover, the slave server becomes the master *and serves out the same identical material*?

    Would rsync work?

    Yes, you can use rsync for files and directories and MySQL replication for the databases.

    In my limited experience, using glusterfs is better.

    Maybe you can use moosefs, it is realy easy to install and configure, and even to be covered from a failed master server.
