I have a couple of existing servers that run on Ubuntu 7.10, and I’m trying to come up with a gameplan to migrate them Debian 4.0 with Virtualmin GPL.
Will Ubuntu 8.04 support hit GPL any time soon?
If so, how’s this for a six-step plan:
- Upgrade to Ubuntu 8.04
- Install Virtualmin GPL
- Modify the domains and setup to run under Virtualmin (the time-consuming part)
- Backup all the virtual servers
- Delete Ubuntu and install Debian and Virtualmin GPL
- Restore all the virtual servers
My hope is that would get things switched over with minimal downtime of the things people notice, like Apache, Postfix, and Dovecot. If I had an extra machine, I would simply rebuild the server offline and flip the switch, but I don’t.
Thanks for any thoughts or advice.
