As first step to get configuration done, we need to have Apache Load Balancer installed and configured to talk with web farm.
Apache web server ships a load balancer module called mod_proxy_balancer (since version 2.2). All you need to do is to enable this module and the modules mod_proxy and mod_proxy_http. Please note that without mod_proxy_http, balancer just won't work.
LoadModule proxy_module mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_http_module mod_proxy_http.so
LoadModule proxy_balancer_module mod_proxy_balancer.so
