Now that you know all the software components in play, it's time to go deep into a web server HA configuration. This proposed design foresees Apache, bonded to a virtual IP address, on top of two nodes. In this design, the HTTPD or, better, Apache is on top of an active/passive cluster that is managed by Corosync/Pacemaker.
