    im working on a layer'd tier using two esxi hosts to bring a HA to a number of sites.

    curious if anyone has some examples for a catch all configs with nginx for two load balancers and two cache servers to one webserver on the backend, perhaps centmin mod has something built in i missed.

    my thinking is enabling HA on each VM would keep the sites up and running in the event of a host failure (not including the storage layer).

    Nginx 1.19.x
    MariaDB 5.5/10.x
    Centmin Mod is provide as is, so short of scripted related bugs or issues, any further optimisation to the web stack components - nginx, php-fpm, mariadb mysql, csf firewall etc or web app specific configurations are left to the Centmin Mod user to deal with. So I do not provide any free support for such.

    However, Centmin Mod users are free to help each other out and ask questions or give answers on this community forum. My hopes are that this community forum evolves so that more veteran long time Centmin Mod users help new Centmin Mod users out :)

    Centmin Mod's Nginx has all the nginx modules it requires for you to configure nginx based load balancing and proxy caching (with exception of the shared file system you'd need i.e. NFS, GlusterFS and any mysql database cluster/replication). You just have to configure it yourself :)

    For nginx reverse proxy & load balancing read the documentation, tutorial and guides below
