Direct admin query
So I've got 2 direct admin vps's ... vps 1 is the main one vps 2 is the slave (dns replication setup)
But it's a shame to see the second vps doing nothing is it possible to move some services .... email or a subdomain to it and make use of it?... ive tried and get errors with "not being the domain owner" ... which is daft as both of them are used exclusively by myself
Many thanks for any help
Isn't there was a plan from DA to offer "Dns only" licenses? That way DA would be castrated enough to put on a nifty 512MB VPS and serve several thousand domains.
check this for dns replication - DirectSlave
I hope so, but for the minute I've got it on a 60gb ssd with a number of cores and a chunk of ram... seems a shame to be only using the os and a bit of disk space for direct admin .... I know the bind files don't take up much space or bandwidth so it's quite literally sitting idle
I've got the dns replicated what I'm looking at doing is using it for other stuff (other than a slave dns server) as its a fully fledged direct admin install
So, do you want load balancing or just use the other server? The latter could be easy enough. Just add the IP-address of server B into the A and AAAA records and point it to server B. Make a domain on server B (even if it is a subdomain, make it a full domain) and it will work.
