The site will be down sporadically this weekend. I’m migrating the server to a new computer. I host this on my own Linux box that is in a standard ATX case. I’ve decided to go to a Shuttle case with it to save space and to look stylish. Space is always an issue. Recently, I upgraded to a 17-inch flatpanel LCD monitor that replaced my bohemoth of a 21-inch CRT monitor. So, more space = happier devnet and happier mrs.devnet. Plus it is easier to clean and what not.
If you experience this downtime, I apologize and please check back later. The site should only be down for a small amount of time…perhaps an hour. The only thing I’ll need to do is a restoration of config files, mySQL backups, and then copy the site files across and ensure permissions.
So, in pure Linux Blog fashion…I’ll post about this and how I did things so that perhaps others can apply this as well for on-the-fly-fast migrations. Thanks for reading!
PS: Update on the experiment…During the downtime, we’ll be installing PCLinuxOS 8.1a onto disk as well. Check back for mrs.devnet’s initial take on this fantastic distro on Sunday or Monday.
