Correct process to spin up a load balancer from a single droplet
Hi, I am running a docker based Discourse droplet. I would like to create a redundant environment and I was thinking about load balancing. What eludes me is the process. I now have a production droplet that runs the website. Should I stop the droplet, make a backup and spin up a new one out of the backup? At that point, I assume I assign both the droplet at the load balancing. My question is, how are the droplets kept in sync ( database and codebase ). Do I need to manually sync them?
