I have two servers, both Debian Linux. Currently I'm using them as a poor man's load balancer for high availability. However, currently I have only 1 MySQL server on the "master", so if the master goes down then the slave is useless.

To solve this I want to setup MySQL cluster with two servers to host the Redmine database. Is this possible? How can I do it?

You can use DRBD+Heartbeat with two servers. For MySQL cluster you will need more hardware

Is MySQL DRBD only available in MySQL Enterprise? – nbolton Aug 19 '10 at 16:32
Is this a good tutorial? – nbolton Aug 19 '10 at 16:35
