Hello,

Is there is recommended way to set up redundancy for a vps , so that if the vps goes down, dns redirects traffic to a mirrored backup server, and it runs off that mirrored backup server until the primary server comes back up?

Therefore client data will be mirrored across two separate servers at any one time?

I found this link here:

Is this still the way to do it, or is there a more automated way to set up the above senario?

Kind regards,
Anthony

Hello :)

cPanel currently supports clustering for DNS purposes only. There is support to host your databases on a remote MySQL server, however beyond that, there are no native options that allow for mirroring of your websites. I recommend searching our forums for "mirroring" and "high availability" for custom solutions that other users may have implemented. There are lots of discussions about the best ways to do this. EX:

Load Balancing Between 2 cPanel Servers
Load Balancing
Load Balancing Servers
cPanel Load Balanced Servers

Also, feel free to add your input to the following active feature requests:

Active Redundancy or High Availability
Build in Load Balancing

Thank you.
