IP for Virtual domain





alja
I am using round robin for one of my domains, so I have two hostings for the same domain. I want to point the guest book to just one of them so I don't have to make two copies of it. How can I point the guestbook that I have in frih$ using an ip address? like 216.32.85.170/~domain/guestbook/sign.php
I hope I make sense, anyway thanks in advance for the help

Maybe this is not a good idea : once you lose your "main" server, your guestbook might be lost.

But anyway, if you want to have some solution, you might put a guestbook-page on your second server that simply redirects to the other server (with hardcoded ip-address then).

This is not the best solution because :
- if the main server is down, your guestbook is down : people will get error 404
- the files on both servers are different : on the main server, you'll have the real guestbook, on the other the redirect page

But it works well if you don't care about the drawbacks...

That's what I want but how can I hardcode ip a virtual domain different than the main frih domain?

Any other way I can deal with this??? I just want to have the guestbook updated with the less trouble.

Help apreciated
