I am wondering if one can run multiple Xibo servers pointing to the same DB. The objective is to have a more than one Xibo app server, behind a simple loadbalancer such as nginx, serve content to the clients. If a Xibo app instance goes down/gets terminated, a new instance gets rebuilt automatically and gets added to the loadbalancer.
There wasn’t any issue getting a new sever installed pointing to a DB hosted on a separate box. When it came to installing the 2nd instance of Xibo, it wasn’t enough to simply copy/create the settings.php and remove the install.php.
I did have to copy over the enitre /var/www/html. Note that I would be OK to have a the library be on an shared file system so that uploaded content, etc be visible to all instances.
Are there any tricks in for such an installation?
I am running Xibo 1.7.8 on Centos7.
