I'd really like to set up load balancing for one of my CPU heavy apps. (it's on about 10 machines that are NOT identical, ie. some big, some small)
Currently, I just use a PHP script to direct people to various servers, but it doesn't handle balancing & failover well, and I don't like that the URL changes to www2, www3, www4, etc.
I've looked in to some simple balancers like Pen, Pound and Balance, but I can't find a crucial weighting / balancing configuration. I've also looked at DNS round robin, but that doesn't seem to be sticky, or have weighting or failover.
So, is there any simple http load balancing software that can handle my requirements?

As many of you may have also experienced, Easy CGI went from being one of the best hosts (I had them for 7 years and they were great), to one of the worst. They migrated to new servers and literally destroyed our site, lost data, did a search and replace of our code (yes, this actually happened), and brought our sites down completely. After about 100 hours of on-line support, chat, phone calls, emails, etc. we have to move on.
The things that were great (prior to the debacle) about EasyCGI was the Windows hosting, fast performance (FTP access was great), and the controls that were available. I'm finding it difficult to match what we used to have. I've tried GoDaddy's VPS packages and that was a complete bust due to FTP performance (would have literally taken us months to just upload our web site ... about 10 GB total).
I tried Network Solutions, but they are only Linux and although they told us they support ASP Upload, ASP Email, and a number of other controls, now tell us that those are not supported.
I've also tried APLUS.NET and 1AND1. Same peformance issues.
anyone have any recommendations for hosting that would meet these needs?
Windows (Virtual or Shared) 30 GB + disk space Unlimited Email Form Mailers (CDONTS or ASP Mail) ASP / ASP.NET / AJAX DSN with Microsoft Access databases Ability to work with SQL Server (not MySQL) databases ASP Upload (or similar) that can be coded in ASP to upload files FAST PERFORMANCE Unlimited FTP accounts (we create a folder and FTP account for each of our customers) Unlimited (or very high) transfers monthly (~ 1000 GB/MO +)
I've got a customer that has a website at hisdomain.com . He created a subdomain called dev.hisdomain.com for the new version of his website. Now he wants to take it live. Had he created dev.hisdomain.com as a subscription instead of a subdomain, it would have been easy to "rename" the old site to old.hisdomain.com and then rename the new site to the current name.
Am I going to have to move all the files around at the command line or is there an easier way to switch around the sites? The server in use is CentOS 6.6
i have moved my hosting to a new provider and i was wondering what is the quickest way to upload my 500MB files to the new server? Is there anyway i can speed this up like have a dedicated uplink port to my server, or via VPN or something, cos at the moment i have an upload speed of around 10KB/s,
