    Has anyone here setup Cpanel on two redundant servers.
    Two senarios to consider:
    1)
    Server B is backup for A. If A fails, B takes over until A is back up.

    2)
    Servers A and B are in a roundrobin (for web and dns - guess not email).

    What is the best way to accomplish this with 2 cpanel servers.

    Thank you,
    Mike E.

    You really can't do either without using a lot of internal network traffic to keep both servers up to date....think databases, email, domlogs, etc.

    Your best bet is to make 1 server as redundant as possible. dual power supplies, RAID, name brand hardware, dual nics, dual network feeds, etc.

    I'm working on a project currently to do this...

    only problem is for true redundancy is that you need a minimum of 6 machines (4x low end) and 2 mid end machines

    my boss has money to throw round and i've got some old hardware that i'll be using
