I have a webserver in a datacenter, running FC2. I've got a second machine there, identical to the first one and to which I copy the backupfiles of the first machine, so that I can bring it up as my webserver in case the first one dies. My question now is : is there any software out there (I suppose there is), to have the second machine automatically fall into place when something (network down, machine crash) happens with the first one ?
Txs !

Take a look at Apache::Mod_Proxy

http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_proxy.html

Beware of open proxies, and remember you would be using it as a load balancer essentially, so don't set up any features you don't plan to use...proxies can be dangerous.

Otherwise, you might need to look at hardware solutions like Cisco's F5 (BigIP)
