Easy Question, can I place any directory onto another server?


Hello, I have a few directories on my server that use a ton of space and bandwidth per month. If I ever needed to get another dedicated server just for those directories alone, I can do so correct and keep the same url? Thanks

Yes a web server sorry. So lets say that one part of my site has about 20 gigs worth of space in the A directory ( www.mysite.com/a/ ) In time would I be able to move all of those files located in the a/ directory and move it to another server, yet still keep the same domain? I think this has something to do with nameservers on a domain right?

I assume your using Apache. I'm NOT the expert on this but I think you can
use NFS to do what you want. I would suggest that you ask on the apache mailing list to be sure.
good luck
