Synchronize Plesk Servers (Failover)
Keep two (or more) Plesk servers in sync for a failover scenario.
Migration Manager only allows manual "sync"
David Roussel commented
@Themedutch - your confusing with a migration from what a failover actually is.
I suggest you read (and understand) the following first https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Failover
Hello all, I found this article not tested yet but should work.
It is possible to use Plesk Scheduled Tasks.
Create task in Tools & Settings > Scheduled Tasks > Add task with the commands from article.
for example to sync content of all domains:
cd /usr/local/psa/var/modules/panel-migrator/sessions/<session_dir_name>/ && /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/modules/panel-migrator/plesk-migrator copy-content
Note: migration session must be opened
generally a good Idea, but I think this is something what should be done serverside, not from Plesk. There are solutions for virtualization where you can have VMs Hot-Standby which are synced.
Agreed, mainly for mail...
Would be great. Plesk could sell millions of extra license's ...
Redundancy should be included by now. It's almost 2020, seven years ago this idea was opted. It's time to act, Plesk. We cannot offer our clients single server solutions anymore. HA is the new default for my clients.
Redundancy and Load balancing is a must! if the Plesk VM goes down/or there is a big load - all websites goes down, so there should be a good way to take care of this.
Probably they won't care too much, because cPanel and Plesk are both owned by the same company: WebPros (funded by Oakley Capital), which also owns WHMCS. So they will rather avoid to steal each other's customers, instead of competing with each other as they used to do until 2018. In other words: the competition with cPanel has already ended over a year ago. :(
100000000% on board with this!! I dont think the plesk team understands that this will actually end the competition with CPanel, making Plesk the reigning winner of Highest Tier Failsafe and intuitive Web hosting control panels.NO OTHER control panel will be able to compete in the same space of web hosting.
A reaction from staff on the nr1 suggestion would be polite.

Thank you 👠🎓🎒👑🔰
Seria muy útil

This really is something we need. Right now I have client sites hosted only on one server with Plesk... if that goes down or needs maintenance done, my client sites go down. Especially since you killed Plesk Multi-Server's functionality to do this, please seriously consider integrating something like this into the new software.
I would like to add a vote for Plesk sync for failover scenario please.
this feature is needed a must feature
Keith Bohler commented
This would be an amazing feature, that if done correctly, could put Plesk to be a better competitor to other panels available. If you guys did an easy to configure, maintain, and reliable solution for failover, this would put Plesk at the top.
What do you still waiting for? Plesk??? It is Q3 2019 we are about to move in mars, come on mate...
yes i agree, i can cluster tomcats behind plesk sites but i cannot have plesk use a strategy to simply cluster apaches
i think with AWS and their great pricing and auto scaling by creating more containers, it would REALLY BE EXCELLENT if us plesk admins could tell our clients that the apache/nginx are also clustered and less prone to issues.
people can use remote db servers or aurora or whatever for db clustering needs but apache and nginx are still single point of failures
progress on a simple way to use plesk to cluster apaches/nginxs would really rock!
They could've easily accomplished this before they killed off Plesk Multi-Server which had node synchronization for some plesk components. And it would have benefited Plesk as they bill for the management node. We use to utilize it paying double than what we currently do but terminated it due to plesk stopped developing it. So it's plesk lost as it seems they have no plans to invest in this capability.
depending on the licensing it could actually be good for business if you have to pay more or an additional license to have a second server. For us its the main thing holding us back from using it for really critical sites and applications.
