In this tutorial were going to set up a glusterfs cluster with a replicated folder for use as webroot (/var/www/html) for our webservers.

I’ve now switched to something different because GlusterFS consumed more ram than available on my low-end servers. Note that this only covers file-replication, not database replication.

In combination with a round-robin DNS it provides a semi-HA setup.
