Re: High Availability mediawiki

No but if you have two servers and on both servers the wiki is under 
the same domain name the only thing you have to do is regularly copy 
all the files and databases to the other server (not in use) if one 
goes down you will have to change the name servers at the registrar.

Technically it would be possible to have two identical wiki's on two 
different domains on two different servers, but that would be a similar story.

You could use this program to backup and ftp the files to the other 
server automatically

And of course you will have to make some cronjobs to copy files from 
one server to the other. (wget, pack, unpack etc backup on one server 
and restore on the other)
