Running a website which load sharing on many server!!!

Dear all,
I'm running my webserver (RHEL4,MySQL,Apache,Php) on one server. Recently, there are many connections to my server and the server become to be overload. Now, i want to run the webserver on three servers to load sharing . Do you have any ways to implement this issue?

Could you refer me to any solutions for building a large web system?

Many thanks,

There are many ways this could be done.

You could use one server for reverse proxy (i.e. only apache). One more server just for the database. And as many web servers as you want in between with apache/php.

WMware server might be of assistance in this in its ability to virtualize the servers.

An easy way to do this is to use dns and setup a round robin mechanism.
