Need to setup a multi-headed LAMP app ASAP. Looking for advice and/or possibly help.
Hello, I've got a web application that was contracted out and was supposed to go live this week. The contractor that did it chose a hosting provider that just is falling down and this isn't even due to traffic. Let's just say it's a hosting provider that's in turmoil and leave it at that. I need to setup at least: 1 load balancer 2 LAMP instances running this PHP, Expression Engine (not my choice) based app 1 MySQL database instance The app needs to be able to handle a peak load of 2000 concurrent requests. This is our high end target but NOT steady state. My questions are: 1) Is this something I can setup quickly and simply here by myself? I'm a high end developer, architect that's done lots of large scale applications in Java, C++, Rails, etc but usually have someone else handle setting up the servers. I'm "linux friendly" but not what I'd call a Linux admin guru. I've setup Rails instances but am not someone that knows all the tuning / setup off the top of my head. Google is my friend. 2) Is there someone out there that'd be interested in a contract to set this up for me with the potential for an admin contract? Any answers / help appreciated. I've put up a Rails server on Digital Ocean and have been really impressed with how quickly I got my Linux distro setup and rockin! Thank you. -Bill
