I asked this on askubuntu.com as well but since it's a server question, figured I'd throw it on SF, too.
Haven't run into this situation before but it seems simple enough. Looking for advice/guidance on the following issue.
I have an Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit server that is configured with 2 identical hard drives in a RAID-1 through the mdadm utility. It's a simple LAMP server that runs a few projects I'm working on but is growing out of the current storage. What I would like to do is install 3 additional hard drives as a second array using mdadm and RAID-5 and have it accessible as /sites (or something similar). I would then like to then move the contents of the projects on the RAID-1 to this new bigger array and simply update their VirtualHost definitions to reflect their new location.
Project A currently located in /home/projecta but after the new RAID-5 is created and accessible the location would be /sites/projecta whre /sites is the path to the new RAID-5.
Am I right in thinking it is this simple or is there a lot more to it than that?
Thanks in Advance!
