I need to migrate my CentOS server onto another with an identical system distribution. I don't know yet how different is hardware the besides amount of memory and GHz (posted separate question about that)
I've been compiling lot's of libraries by hand on my original server, installing them to standard location and did not keep a record :). (there is no one to fire me for this - I only lose time and money here and hopefully - learn something)
Migration will also involve moving user stuff, setting permissions, file ACLs. (here is question on moving user accounts, but there's nothing about facl)
Is there anything in the world that can help me re-create the beast on the new host?
Are there any tools that allow such migrations in a more orderly fashion? (preventive or more active tools)
Obviosuly I'm no sysadmin - but I hope to learn more. Thanks.
There was a similar question about migrating windows server - in my case it's linux.
