Load Balancing: Next Step After Spinning Server
Overall, I’ve created a Droplet, installed LAMP, loaded my website, and have made a snapshot of the Droplet. Currently, I have horizontally spun a 2nd Droplet, which has OS software on it and nothing else. I want to investigate how to reduce server load, but I’m not sure what needs to be done as a next step.
Is this 2nd server (with just OS) now automatically linked with the original server (with LAMP) to reduce load? Or, does the 2nd server need the LAMP stack installed on it also, to have things working together? Or, is this where load balancing needs to happen to connect the two servers? I’m assuming it is load balancing.
Your help is appreciated to the direction of my next steps.
