The Configuration Cluster interface would allow one to link a master server to one or more additional servers in the configuration cluster. The user can then choose to copy server configuration settings from Web Host Manager Update Preferences Interface:
Home >> Server Configuration >> Update Preferences to the configuration cluster’s servers.
An important fact is that after this feature is enabled, the user must also select the Send my settings to all configuration cluster servers checkbox in Web Host Manager’ Update Preferences interface (Home >> Server Configuration >> Update Preferences) on the master server. The interface would only display the checkbox after servers have been added to the configuration cluster.
Before the configuration cluster is set up in the Configuration Cluster interface, the user needs to log in as a root-level user on the server that one wishes to use as the master server.
The user must also log in to the master server as a root-level user to make the configuration changes that you want to copy to the configuration cluster’s servers.
The Configuration Cluster interface would display a list of all of the servers that were linked to the currently-authenticated server.
|Server||The server’s IP address, or the name that you assigned to the server (for example, example.com).
You can use any other domain name that resolves to the server’s IP address for this value. However, to prevent problems if you migrate domains to another server, we recommend that you use the server’s hostname.
|User||The username of the server’s root-level account. This value defaults to the root user.|
|Remote Access Key||The signature version of the server’s remote access key or API token.|
Add a server.
To add a server to the configuration cluster, the following steps need to be performed:
To modify the remote access key or API token for a server in the configuration cluster, the following steps need to be performed:
The arrow icon needs to be clicked that corresponds to the server for which the remote access key or API Token is to be modified.
The Remote Access Key text box displays either the current access key’s signature or API token. However, the user must enter the entire remote access key or API token to make changes. Click Save.
To remove a server from the list of the configuration cluster’s servers, perform the following steps:
Configuration Cluster is an integral part of CPANEL. Using this feature the access key can be copied. A new access key can be generated thereafter. The access key includes the first 32 characters of the remote access key.
