moving to a new vps

Post by blackturbo » Mon Sep 21, 2015 11:03 pm

hello all,

I currently have an irc server beening running a few months with anope services on linux vps. I purchased a less expensive vps and wish to move my irc server there.

How would one go about this?

do i need to set up new unreal and anope on the new vps, and then just copy files from the old vps to the new vps and overright all the new config files.

Thank you, this would be a great help to have some guidance. :)

Mark

what I meant was,

do I go ahead and run a new installation of both unrealircd and anope on the new vps, then copy important config files over. I tried just copying everything without a new installation and it didnt work. thanks xD

Copying the configs over should work as long as you don't have fully qualified paths. If you do and the paths differ, you need adjust them. Also explicitly defined IP addresses need to be updated as well.
