    single domain with two installation

    We are currently setting up two installation for a single domain, if one fails the other installation will take over. So my question is how would I manage umbraco.config which will be different at some point. Have any one tried this before?

    I believe i will run into a few problems like caching, locks with files in app_data?

    Hi Tajamal,

    It sound to me that you are talking about a load balancing setup, so if one sever fails then another sever will ensure that the site is running.

    Have you tried to have a look at our documentation about how to use / setup load balancing in Umbraco

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Tajamal,

    Like Dennis pointed out you want a load balanced setup. If you are using Umbraco version 7.3.x or higher no config will be needed.

    You will have 2 webservers running the same website pointing to the same database.

    You will need a loadbalancer to handle the load between the 2 websites.

    Thank you guys, I have version 7.3.x :)

    This is exactly what I want to achieve. I will walk through the documentation to see what I need to do with load balancing.

    This sounds like a setup from my system admin team.
