I have a
debian server that I need to move from one hosting provider to another. I don't really know how the old server was setup, all I know is that it's running a
Ruby on Rails application with a lot of custom libraries installed and that I should prepare myself for a painful migration.
-used disk space:
-free disk space:
As you can see the problem is that the servers are running different architectures.
Q: Is there anyway I could somehow migrate the old to the new server in a few steps (or am I just dreaming I could) ?
I was thinking maybe I could:
-get list of packages and gems installed on old server and use for loop to install them all on the new
-copy the disk content from old to new server while excluding what is architecture-specific (the problem is that I don't really know what to exclude).
