You shouldn't have two copies of your site out there. Pick a central  
location for the entire site and mount the directory from there to  
both your 'Web Heads', which would include your wp-content/uploads  
folder. I generally use the DB Server for this, instead of trying to  
replicate mysql across both full stack LAMP boxes, and have both  
instances talk to that DB on a private IP.
