The company I now work for specializes in web development. They are currently selling clients packages where they develop web applications for them to help automate certain business tasks for them. Then they host the web application. This is currently being done on Mochahost until they transition to a private server.
I have recently setup another box running Ubuntu 12.04 as a test web server. They decided they want to use this box as a backup DNS server to the Mochahost primary. My experience with web servers is very limited. What should the generic process be for accomplishing this? I was thinking I would just need to download the db files from the Mochahost primary server, save them to the secondary server, configure the primary server to point to the secondary server for zone-updating, and then configure the secondary server zone files. Am I missing anything? And how should I go about getting db files from the Mochahost primary server?
