You Know What's Cool?

We're virtualised now.  I'll never have to do another messy server move.  When we get the next server (which could be quite a while, since Akane has a much better upgrade path than our previous servers), all I need to do is set up OpenVZ (or Virtuozzo) on the new system, copy the container across, and then on the day of the move, stop the old container, do an rsync update, and start it up on the new server.

A few things broke because of CPanel overwriting configuration files, or version changes of underlying software, or moving from 32-bit to 64-bit.  Next time, none of that will happen.

I don't remember if I'm still on the servers, or if I'm a munuvian on the mee.nus, but either way if there were glitches, I sure didn't notice! 

Nicely done, Papa Pixy!
