For developing and testing issues its often required to run the application on the local machine. In this section your will learn how to set-up a local environment to run multiple server nodes.

As load balancer we recommend to use the Apache HTTPD Service. Download here.

Include the file "httpd-vhosts.conf". For this search for "httpd-vhosts.conf" and uncomment the line.

Now opten the file "config/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf". Uncomment the line with "##NameVirtualHost *:80" and insert the following code:

<VirtualHost *:80>
	ProxyRequests off
	ServerName localhost
	<Proxy balancer://cluster>
		BalancerMember http://localhost:8081
		BalancerMember http://localhost:8082
		BalancerMember http://localhost:8083
	ProxyPass / balancer://cluster/

To use the Load Balancer with your Clients you have to update their Server URL to: server.url=http\://localhost\/helloworld_server/process
