Php apache linux network share question

Hi all,
Is it possible to set up a file server that one or more web servers could write and read?
I want to cache data from the db in flat files and be able to add php webservers as load increases.
TIA

Yes it’s possible for PHP to access a standard network share. Just mount the share and access it using fopen() as you would normally.

Another nice alternative is SSHFS (see http://embraceubuntu.com/2005/10/28/how-to-mount-a-remote-ssh-filesystem-using-sshfs/ for details on setting it up) which allows you to access files over SSH as if they were local.
