We’re wanting to move our pod to a different server for a number of reasons (get it out of the US, get rid of anything bitnami related, and move from centos to ubuntu). I think it should be pretty simple to do but wanted to check with someone with more diaspora experience than me
I was planning on getting a new installation of diaspora up and running on the new server and testing that first to make sure it works. What I’m not sure about are the ssl certs. I’d like to test that they work too. I have another domain I can use to test and can get new certs for that from let’s encrypt but once I’m ready to move the pod can I just copy over the existing certs from the pod? Also, I’d like to do a test run of copying over the pod db and making sure that works but am worried I’ll break something by doing so, especially since I won’t update the dns until I make the actual move. Oh, and I was thinking of using rsync to copy over the uploads and keep them updated until the move unless someone has a better suggestion for that. We have over 25gb there and that’ll take a while to copy.
