Mirroring 2 servers /w failsafe dns and syncing?
As noted in the above post I would like to also have failsafe DNS set up so that in case one box goes down, it will be kicked to the other box, and so on. I am planning on using DNSmadeeasy.com.
My questions are as follows:
1. Is there a syncing script that will allow for the website to be updated on both servers (the main and the secondary one) each night? This is so the site on the secondary server stays current and does not appear out of date when kicked over to it.
2. I currently run cpanel/whm, so, I assume that on the secondary server I'll need to have it installed so everything runs correctly, right?
I am planning of just offering this service as an add-on to websites that want it at first, to see how it goes.
Another thing I have been thinking about is, would it be possible to set up a 'skeleton' site that looks exactly like the main site, but just says something along the lines of 'We are currently experiencing difficulties, sorry for any inconvinience.' This method will just require the backup of the main homepage and their logo and the main feel of the website, and no real updates.
I hope I didn't confuse you with all this.
