I’ve setup a more resilient web service for a good client of mine.. http://www.practicalaction.org/

By using 2 servers and ‘pound’ they now have some load balancing but most importantly some resilience.. so if one server dies, they have a complete and current duplicate to fall back on.

wget http://www.invoca.ch/pub/packages/pound/pound-2.3.2-1.src.rpm
yum install rpm-build
yum install pcre-devel google-perftools-devel
