I have a dedicated server running ubuntu server 9.04 for web, database and mail. There's about 5 GB of data on the entire hard drive.
I want to migrate the server to a more affordable dedicated server provider but I am unsure how to do this.
- Can I clone an entire hard drive? What about hardware specific files/dirs?
- Or maybe there is a saner approach?
- The future hosting will probably have another version of ubuntu, so should I upgrade our current server before migrating? How about migrating apache, mysql and postfix?
