I have bandwidth limitations for a busy and image-heavy D6 site so I decided to outsource my /webroot/site/default/files to my second server which is almost idle.

I tried to do so using CDN module, which I previously used successfully with a CDN provider. So I moved (and rsynced) all the files to the second server and set up a cdn.mydomain.com there. I could wget images directly off the second server but for some reason I could not manage to display images on the site.

Due to my budget constraints I can not use S3 or any commercial CDN for this purpose. So I am wondering what you guys suggest to serve static files from my second server?

    kiamlaluno, have you ever read the post before closing it?! I really doubt. My question has nothing to do with asking a provider. It is a purely technical question. It is not my fault that others suggested a commercial solution in comments as solution and I briefly replied. – Levox Mar 9 '13 at 23:36

    "Due to my budget constraints I can not use S3 or any commercial CDN for this purpose. So I am wondering what you guys suggest to serve static files from my second server?" This is a shopping question, if you are not talking about a module to use. Since you are asking about a CDN provider, I take that means a server, not a module. (See also the question title.) If you are asking about a server you setup, you should make that clear, but keep in mind that it is not CDN if you don't have a network distributed over the territory. – kiamlaluno Mar 10 '13 at 9:17

    The question is legitimate, but it is not a question for this very site. First, it is not a Drupal specific question, if not for the fact you could be interested in a CDN provider for which there is a module to support it. (The CDN module should support all of them, though.) Second, shopping questions are not welcome on Stack Exchange; see Q&A is Hard, Let's Go Shopping! – kiamlaluno Mar 10 '13 at 9:30

    After having read the linked to blogpost, I feel like the close is correct. The question is certainly legitimate, but in it's current form doesn't fit the site. – Letharion Mar 10 '13 at 15:50

    The question is relevant to Drupal, specifically, it is stated that wget works, but images do not--I'd guess this is due to Imagecache, which would not work without some custom 404-handling on the secondary server. – jhedstrom Mar 11 '13 at 0:00
