I have two servers that I've set up, and I've been researching a way to set up automatic failover/clustering. This does not seem difficult to do, with one exception.
SSL certs. An SSL cert is bound to one IP only. How do I set up clustering so that I can host my sites with SSL certs? Do I just buy two certs and keep a slightly different version of my site on each server in case of failure? I plan on using rsync to keep the majority of the pages and databases current between systems.
I'm looking at using the Hercules Load Balancer Virtual Appliance (based on pen) posted on vmware's site (http://www.vmware.com/appliances/directory/300
Is there another method that is out there that I'm not seeing that doesn't cost an arm and a leg?
Thanks for the help!
