How does IP Failover work?
Configure what IPs you own are allowed to come up on each Linode.
What do i do to set it up?
In terms of configuring it inside your OS yourself.. Add both of them to the network cards ie eth0:X and go from there..
So if I have two linode account, configured with HA.
which linode/Where should I load my website?
My website has database, so I don't think i can load my website to two linodes, am i right? if not the database will not sync each other…
Have HA automaticly ifup the public IP when it detects the other server down.
Thats how you can do automatic fail over.. Either use rsync or something else to do your file level copy, or do it yourself depending on how you feel like doing it..
What would you suggest to have HA and load-balancing? Also Would you suggest keeping mysql localhost and do mysql master:master replication or keep it 2-Tier?
I was thinking of having app1 and app2 linodes and Db linode (3 linodes total) but if the mysql does down for whatever reason, HA fails.
Appreciate your suggestion.
