[Resolved] Using alternate URL's for wordpress

  • I have a working wordpress site, as example http://www.example.com .
    I want to extend the install to a high available 2 server config.
    Now for simplicity i don’t want a cluster fs or something like that, just i’m syncing the files from first server to second from time to time.

    Now since i will have a loadbalancer before the 2 server, when i login can end up in any of the 2 servers . I would like to login to the first, so if i upload a file will get synced to 2nd.

    Added 2 new hostnames : server1.example.com and server2.example.com, configured in the webserver etc.
    But when i try to view http://server1.example.com/wp-admin it gets redirected to http://www.example.com/wp-login.php. I tried to login via http://server1.example.com/wp-login.php, but after login i get redirected to the dashboard at http://www.example.com .
    Tried to disable the canonical URL redirect, but didn’t help.

    Any solution to this?

    Thanks.

    Thats happening due to wrong config.

    First build setup separately from scratch with IP only. You can use heartbeat pacemaker for highly scalable 2 server setup. Loadbalancers should never interfere normal function. Which web hosting service you are using and which kind of technology for loadbalancer ?

    By any means use 3 cloud database (with FQDN) with master slave config (use HyperDB plugin) – without caching your WP will load within 0.7 seconds. (ref : http://wordpress.org/support/topic/mysql-or-mysqli-is-best?replies=24#post-3235729)

    Make the new setup fool proof, then restore the backup from old setup to new one. Then change the domain records for pointing the domain name.

    You are answering the question i didn’t ask. While i could setup the loadbalancer to drop me allways on the same server based on source IP, this wouldn’t help me tomorrow when my IP changes or when the other admins/posters need to login etc.

    The question: can i make wordpress work on server1.example.com and server2.example.com to (without redirecting to the main site).

    You are answering the question i didn’t ask.

    Because it will never work with WordPress in the way you want. WordPress is very simple software.

    For future reference: i was able to do what i wanted with this plugin:
