LowEndBoxTV: Building a Highly Available WordPress Site, Part 6: Does It Work?!?

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: May 23, 2021 @ 12:00 pm, by raindog308

In this series, we take you from bare-metal to a highly-available WordPress site, load-balanced over two nodes and resistant to VPS failures using MariaDB multi-master replication, DRBD, and round-robin DNS.

In this, the final episode of the series, we enable round-robin DNS and test our setup. What happens if we take down node #1? What about node taking down node #2? Does the user’s browser correctly switch nodes? Find out as we put our work to the test!

This video is based on our earlier tutorial.
