Post Load balancing for a web site
I have a growing website that needs to move from its current single-server setup to using a cluster of servers to deliver its dynamic pages.
My current host does not support load balancing among its servers, so I'm left to configure that on my own. Round-rovin DNS doesn't work for me as I'll need certain http requests to always go to the central server (the one with the master database).
My distro is Redhat 9, and I only access the server remotely through SSH. I'm using Apache 2 (and PHP and Mysql).
Any ideas on the simplest way to do this?
I've read a bit about LVS ( but it seems to require a kernel recompile, which is way beyond the things I would dare to try...
Thanks a lot.
