Why? Well I presume you must, otherwise whoever you're building this
fore would have long switched to git or Mercurial.

Why why why???

Are you trying to build simple failover, and you have no requirements
for load balancing at all? Forget cLVM or any cluster filesystem. Use
regular LVM and ext3 or XFS or whathaveyou. The build a resource group
with ocf:heartbeat:LVM, ocf:heartbeat:Filesystem, ocf:heartbeat:IPaddr2,
and ocf:heartbeat:apache. Make sure you configure STONITH so you can
arbitrate access to shared storage.
