Following on from testing yesterday, I can't see a way to do this: * Traffic ---> backend1 * backend1 fails * Traffic ---> backend2 (hot standby) * backend2 fails * Traffic ---> backend3 (2nd hot standby) ie we cannot have a hot-standby-hot-standby. The best I have come up with is weighting the two backup backends, so only a very small amount of traffic goes to one of the two live backup machines. This isn't ideal - the spec I need to meet is to have two tiers of failover, with the app only ever running on a single instance. How can I achieve this? Is it possible? S.

stupid question, why your idea is any better than having 3 loadbalanced servers? anyway, what you are asking can be done with recursive error_pages.

Just because the application isn't very good - it doesn't play nicely running concurrently on more than one server, > anyway, what you are asking can be done with recursive error_pages. Could you expand upon this? S.
