My office uses web based software hosted on dreamhost, and after compiling our own version of PHP, hasn’t gone down.
We were thinking, for even more reliability, of moving to a dedicated server, but hey, while we’re moving in the direction of reliability, how about a backup server as well?
You know, some setup like having 2 apache/perl/php boxes and a pair of mysql servers, having one sql server replicate the other so that if one of the boxes goes down things will be routed automatically to the other.
Doesn’t that sound expensive? This looks like DH’s highests level of dedicated hosting, cept that doesn’t have redundancy of multiple servers
What would be the best way to go about getting a redundant steup? We’ve been happy with DH and don’t want to move.
Will DH offer customized plans?
