    Hi guys,
    I am new to Linux based servers. I am running Centos 6.2 with cPanel/WHM on it.

    What I really need is to set up a "Mirror" server, that will kick on if my main server goes down. My server was down for a few nights and didnt even know about it.

    I am not looking for a DNS cluster, I already have 3 clusters (NS1, NS2, NS3) setup.

    I know there are limitation on Linux when it comes to mirroring or cloning. I tried using rsync, but first it was very complicated and second, I was told that rsync will not clone the entire server because of the running scripts.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    With regards,
    Robin

    Hello :)

    I have moved this thread to the data protection forum so it has a better chance of being viewed by other users with similar setups. While this type of functionalty is not yet supported by cPanel, many users acheive this through custom configurations. Feel free to add your input to the existing feature request:

    cPanel Mirroring

    Thank you.
