Hi there @yggitteam,

What you could do is use Lsyncd, for example, to sync the files from your main server to the secondary one.

You can then upload and make all of the changes to the main server, and the changes will be synced over to the second server.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

I would recommend having your database hosted on a separate Droplet so that way your two web servers would connect to the same database, and you will not have to worry about data synchronization.

I hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
