This is a wordpress site
Hi…I have a site that does flash sales and from time to time is overwhelmed with traffic. After many failures we have separated the database to it’s own server and was recommended to place the web files (mirrored on two additional servers) and files such as images and other web files are synced every 60 seconds. Would load balancing spread the load between both servers, effectively increasing the overall processing power? From what I have read it seems to be more of a fail safe if one server is having issues…OR say if there are 1000 users and the server is reaching it’s limit does it in turn use the other server to process additional orders…would be nice to be able to call tech support at CF but that does not seem possible.
If load balancing would effectively increase the amount of processes that can be handled overall (we are now maxing out the single server web/dB on one box configuration causing database connection issues) would I place 1 server in each of two pools?
The sales are over in a matter of seconds sometimes…can anyone give me insight as to if this solution is the correct one.
