i have a crappy server for a good price and i was given another one free and they both go down alot even through i dont use the secound one that much. what i want to ask he is probely known i just havent heard of it. and i need some small questions answered.
i have 18 cliebts on the forest sever and i want to buy direct admin setup the users on the other server to match my current server and then to make it so that evry 4 hours the home directrly from server 1 is checked agianst the home dir of server 2 and if a file is changed or their is a new one it is replaced or uploaded. and when server 1 goes down i can switch to server 2. got it
so this poses 2 problems for me. firstly how is harry krishners name do i do this is their a app or what. and domains. i know very little about them infact i hate them. but i need to know that if i use the first 2 name severs on a domain as serverones and the other 2 as server towes and when server one goes down itlooks at the dns for server 2 and moves over silently. got it
now my main server is a amd sempron with 512mb ram and a 120gb drive with 500gb bw and server 2 is a sempron aswell with 512mb ram and 120gb drive (i will upgrad froma a 80 if it is posible) and 400gb bw.
now either you are reading this and getting pissed off cos this is so easyand wel documented or your gettign pissed cos this is bull.
i only think i need one thig and thats some somrt of cron ftp accesing file updater backuper of some sort. (and something for mysql and stuff).
