I’ve been moving around some of the technological assets under my control. I completed a Registrar switch in May. I’ve been working the last month to move servers. I’m still with BlueHost because they are great, I just moved to a box with fewer people on it (i.e. less resources to share). I also get my very own IP address and SSL certificate!
I just completed the switch of AFdN (which was the last asset on the old server) this afternoon. Everything should be okay, but if not, please let me know.
For those interested, here’s what I did (over SSH from the new server):
ssh old_server.com 'cd ~/www/; mysqldump -u username -p mysql_wp > dump.sql;' rsync -av --exclude 'notthisfolder' -e ssh old_server.com:~/www/ ~/www/. mysql -u username_new -p mysql_wp < ~/www/dump.sql rm ~/www/dump.sql
