Subject Re: [users@httpd] Is there a how-to for building an Apacher server farm?
Date Wed, 26 Apr 2006 21:47:18 GMT
I myself have not set one up, but from the casual reading it "seems"  
fairly straight forward.

Multiple apache machines with the web content in sync...  then setup  
round robin dns.

There might be (and probably is) more involved, but it might be a start?
