mod_rewrite and clustering Any issues? sugarkane
I have a project over the next few months to bring our hosting in-house.
I am looking at using Apache's rewrite and proxy modules to provide a means of load sharing and resilience by randomly choosing from a cluster of mirrored servers.
I have understood (I think ;) the way to do it, but I suddenly had an awful thought: will this be detectable in any way to SEs ie will the http responses be any different?
I do not use cloaking as our rankings are mainly based on theming and link pop, so I'd hate to set any alarm bells ringing, as I understand that mod_rewrite is widely used for cloaking?
I'd hugely welcome any comments from anyone who's attempted this kind of thing.
