Around March 10th, 2021 million of websites went offline as fire destroyed one of the four data centers of OVHcloud in France. According to internet monitors many government, banks and news portal sites went offline because of the fire.

So, if you don't have a disaster recovery plan in place, your site could end up with same fate. That's where High availability come into play.

The High Availability feature allows you to maintain 100% uptime for your sites. In this feature, CyberPanel Cloud will take care of creating 100% replica of your Main server to a secondary Fail over server. We will go one-step further and take care of DNS switch in case your Main server goes down so that you can sleep peacefully.

You need to be at least on Professional or Business plan to create clusters, read more here.

  1. You need to configure Cloudflare API as mentioned above and your DNS should be handled by Cloudflare, so that Cloud can perform DNS switch in case of downtime.
  2. Once Cloudflare is configured, you need to create a cluster (which will be explained later in this tutorial below)
  3. Once the cluster is created and booted up from Cloud, Cloud will sync your data (the sync duration will be selected by you while creating cluster)
  4. Cloud will also set up your MySQL to be in 100% sync in real-time.
  5. Cloud will also create and sync virtual host configurations between the main and failover servers.
  6. Cloud will check your main server every 3 minutes, if the server is down then a DNS switch will be performed.
