Hi
I have a Windows 2003 running WAMP Server 2 with about 50 Websites
We have a backup system installed that we still want to learn how to use

We want to also have an emergency backup system that is straight forward
If our Server fails, or power cut, we would like go be able to get online on another location very fast. (we controll DNS hosting for all so thats easy to admin)
 
This is what we want:
1. Original Wamp server in location x
2. Additional WAMP server in location y

A freeware program that can Sync WAMP on x with WAMP on y
or
Is there a better way to do this?
It needs to be easy without having to run backup applications etc.
We also have this but I want to have one system where we can get the sites up again,just by  pointing the DNS Settings to another server

Hi
Did you consider to clone the server?
Clonezilla, savepart, ghost...

You need a identical, equal or at least compatible hardware to do this.

In order to syncronize ithem you will need a peogram ideed, no way without any software tools/help

Hi
I was sure that with WAMP all webserver info is in tne C:\WAMP folder
That means that we just neen to find a program that sync them maybe 1-2 times a week.
Best a program you can scedule.
Its ok to use a program, what I dont want is some expesive tool that you have to run restores in order to get clone server up.

Am I wrong thinking that any folder sync program would do the job? (over VPN)
