Subject Re: AW: AW: [users@httpd] clustering
Date Tue, 22 Apr 2003 08:38:43 GMT
Like it sound to me when i first read the suject, you can 
set the servers as a computer cluster this way they will 
distribute processing through all servers automaticly, and 
(not shure) use just one server to have all the 
information instead of having it on all servers.

Rafael
