In January I had a notification from my VPS (Virtual Private Server) provider OVH, telling me that the VPS platform mine was hosted on was being retired on April 30th 2020. They offered 6 months free on the newer platform but migration had to be done manually. This pissed me off beyond belief because I know what’s involved with a full server migration!
There was a slight issue with setting up the replacement to start with but that was quickly resolved.
I’ve been putting it off for a while, deliberately waiting until this week because I’m off work. So this week arrives and I have little choice due to time constraints but now I face another problem: I feel like shit!
It wasn’t straightforward. I didn’t expect it to be straightforward, but I solved all the issues that gave me some severe headaches and now the migration is (provisionally) complete. This is coming from the new server! It took over 7 hours!
I’m keeping the old one active for now, until I’m happy this migration is really complete and I haven’t missed something in the process. Now where’s that LemSip?
