I currently administer a small web server running ubuntu linux with apache, mysql, and ssh. I'm backing it up using rsync to another server, but I'm backing it up to a /backup directory.
I'd like to have it set up where if the first server goes down I can change the ip of the second server and have all the users, files, databases etc. ready to go.
Does anyone have any suggestions on the easiest / best way to go about this?
- Apache Configuration
- Making sure the same software is installed on both boxes. (probably need to do this up front)
