2 Server Load Balancing and Fail-over Protection (Windows 2008 w/ xampp Apache)

2 Server Load Balancing and Fail-over Protection (Windows 2008 w/ xampp Apache)

(OP)
Hi,

I need to setup a load balancing/fail-over solution for my web server. The server is currently running on Server 2008 with an installation of xampp for Apache and MySQL. I have one other server and would like to use it for the load balancing/fail-over solution. I have tested the builtin cluster functionality, but it seems to require a minimum of 3 servers and if the cluster host goes down all is lost. Am i wrong in that assumption?

Do you know of possible solutions for load balancing/fail-over with only 2 servers? Do you of any way to do so with systems using apache and mysql?

Thanks!
