Solved How can I host a server farm?

Specs: windows 7 ultimate, 2.13GHZ dual core 4GB RAM
Hi, I am trying to setup a server farm. I have 2 servers. I will be hosting WAMP on it, with wordpress. Because of this, I will need a way to mirror the mysql database and a folder across the servers. Here's the catch: I want the second server to act as a "backup" server. If the first server were to fail, the second one would be ready to start. How can I do this?

So, I need to mirror the mysql and mirror a folder.

Sure...it would just mirror, with no automatic failover. So it would function only as a DB backup. But I would still take nightly mysqldump backups...

I can't vouch for mysql replication on Windows, but it works good on linux w/ mysql 5.5.

Not sure there is a way to use windows 7 to do a fail over or other live state.

You might consider raid array and regular backups or go to an enterprise level OS for fail over.

Hang up and live.

I believe you'd need Server 2003/2008, to get the "Cluster Server" software. It is not part of Windows 7.

BTW, you can do this on Linux with MySQL Replication and CARP.
