I want to create a fallback server (files and mailserver) (of 1 or more vps) on a server in a different country so different datacenter and all. Best if it makes incremental updates of files that have changed only. Is this possible to do through WHM and if so, do i need a copy of whm to do this on both machines?

Hello :)

cPanel currently supports clustering for DNS purposes only. There is support to host your databases on a remote MySQL server, however beyond that, there are no native options that allow for management of services across multiple servers. I recommend searching our forums for "mirroring" and "high availability" for custom solutions that other users may have implemented. There are lots of discussions about the best ways to do this. EX:

Load Balancing
Load Balancing Servers
cPanel Load Balanced Servers

Also, feel free to add your input to the following active feature requests:

Active Redundancy or High Availability
Built in Load Balancing

Thank you.
