    Wondering what the best option(s) are for doing essentially a daily automated account transfer of all account on one server to another. I want the second server to serve as sort of a hot-swappable backup (just by modifying DNS) in the event of an extended network or server outage (servers are in two different data centers). Sites aren't mission critical enough or large enough businesses to justify full-on clustering as most of the sites are static and I can do MySQL replication and/or hourly rsync to update the databases and file folders for the more dynamic sites.

    There are no native options with the cPanel/WHM software that allow for the automatic configuration of that level of redundancy for the entire filesystem. However, feel free to to vote and add feedback to the existing feature request for this at:

    Server configuration and data auto-sync (mirroring)

    In addition, you can review user-submitted solutions under the "Comments" section of this feature request to see how others are setting up these types of environments.
