comment Duplicate PHP installations
To provide more details it would be helpful to know the OS, what the OS version is. Also would be useful to know how precisely 5.2.9 was installed and how you attempted to upgrade 5.3.1

comment Recommend a USB Flash copier (Software or Hardware based) for Keep-it-simple-stupid bitwise copy
dd does not technically require root permissions to function. You can setup your system so that any attached usb device notes are set to be writable by a non-privileged user.

comment Should a sys admin backup important data in anyway he can, even if he disagrees with the backup strategy?
Not sure I understand your second point. Almost no backup media is secure on its own. If you enable encryption in the backup software, the backup will be secure. A simple truecrypt volume on a portable drive would give you adequate security. Your first point is equally weak. No backup media is 100% reliable, they all can fail. A backup on a portable hard drive can't be any worse the no backup at all if the proper security is put in place.

comment Is it a Best Industry practice to restart web servers periodically?
I don't think I agree when you say a server should never be restarted. Servers should be restarted to apply security fixes. They should never need to be restarted for things other then planned maintenance though.

comment Ubuntu: Simple way to move a production system to a new Hardware
@Vokuhila-oliba, Simply clone the drive then use something like gparted to extend the drive. Expanding partitions is well covered in other questions.
