View Full Version : [ubuntu] LAMP Server Farm

January 15th, 2011, 08:06 PM
Hello all!

I'm about to build a server farm that will load-balance, serve webpages, and run MySQL. I've ran across a number of tutorials for programs such as keepalived and heartbeat, but they're all either for old(er) versions of Ubuntu (I'm running 10.10) or very incomplete (complete with poor English!).

I'd like to have a load balancer, an apache instance, and a MySQL server on a single node. If there's a better way of handling that, I'd like to know about it.

At some point, I'll need to think about file replication across the nodes.

Does anybody have any thoughts, links, life experiences, or others' life experiences that might help in my quest?

Here's some interesting links to get things started.
