    server arrangement

    finally getting around to asking this question its been on my mind a while.

    so lets say I have a website with one server, be it a rented one or my own. this server has a database and can manage a fictitious number of requests at any given time, lets say 5000. my website grows and I need to add another server to manage the extra requests, when setting up the second server do I need to copy the database and its contents from the first server onto the second or does the second server work off the database on the first server? the latter doesn't seem right because the first server can still only handle x amount of requests regardless of an extra server. the first seems cumbersome, what actually happens with multiple machine websites?

    You can run your database on a seperate server. If thats all that particular server handles, it may be OK. Normally, handling your database on a seperate server will improve your sites performance (depending on the speed between the two servers). May I ask what specs your server is running? If you are just wanting a second server than all you would have to do is move everything across.
