We are planning to migrate 9 domains currently administrated under VirtualMin on a dedicated box at GoGrid to three different instances at Digital Ocean
Domain 1 to a separate “droplet”
Domain 2 to a separate “droplet:”
domains 3-9 to a hi-volume “droplet”
After setting up the account(s) we will be sitting there with 3 new droplets running a shiny new Ubuntu OS (we are moving from CentOS to Ubuntu as my developers are not that happy with “down stream Red Hat”)
In the past I’ve done this job myself. VirtualMin helped because you could back up an entire domain, move it to the new box (we used to do this on the LAN inside the GoGrid shed so it was fast) one at a time. But still it was a process fraught with issues. Now we are not moving to a new box inside the same data center but to a new service and separate “servers” (aka “droplets” in Digital Ocean speak)
'm not sure the best way to proceed. I mentioned this here earlier this year and someone said Cloud Min could help us. So what do I do? Does it go like this (please amend, edit as needed, this road map)
After all three servers are up… with shiny new OS but no content. (we will check to include mySql, PHP, PostGre, PostFix for mail, FTP etc… apps that we need) then what?
install CloudMin on one of these?
Give CloudMin access to server (as root?) and then “tell” it to migrate the entire domain (everything /home folder/ mySQL databases etc) to the new “droplet”
what about the one server that will host 7 domains? I have a virtualMin license for 10 domains… can I use this on the three different droplets? If the total domains does not exceed 10?
Do we need CloudMin for physical devices or CloudMin for 10 instances?
Thanks… IMHO the above is not really a road map… and I will appreciate a “real” road map to getting this done.
