Apache doesn't have sessions, so you don't need to replicate sessions.
HTTP is essentially stateless. If you have a simple website all you
need to do is replicated it over X instances of Apache with a
loadbalancer in front of it. If one server goes down the loadbalancer
will not send requests to it, and your user's requests will go to the
other servers.
I your web application has sessions than it is up to that
webapplication to make sure that session information is shared amongst
all servers.
