    file sync between 2 RHL boxes

    Hi folks,
    We have 2 servers here in my work. Both servers are identical running RHL.

    One of these boxes will be our live site and the other will be pre-production that will act as a fall back should anything happen to live.

    My question though is how can I sync the file contents from live to pre-production - any recommended tools out there?

    Anything that would be able to sync only files that have changed since the last sync would be great.

    Yes it is, you can sync almost realtime, if you want realtime take a look to DRDB filesystem. But yes, there are a lot of tutorials/howto's for rsync and it will complete the job

    yup, rsync can do wonders and has many options that are useful (currently using on a few sites that need clustering). | 10+ Years of Web Hosting Experience!
