Redundancy mode

Link copied to clipboard

For all of your installation’s secondary sites to remain operational when the main site is unavailable, designate one of them as redundant and let the other sites initiate failover to it. To do this, enable the Redundancy mode option for the secondary site that contains instances of PortaBilling and a stand-by database. The system will check this site’s configuration and define it in the Failover site field.

The site, which contains instances of PortaBilling and stand-by database, can only be made to failover to itself.

Enable the Redundancy mode option for other secondary sites and select the previously configured site in the Failover site field.

Apply the new configuration to save the changes.
