New Server

(1/3) > >>

Move is complete... at least as far as I can tell. This was a completely new installation on a new, virtual server, with all data migrated by hand. I apologize for the two hours or so of interruptions overnight, but I think most things are working now. I'm sure I'll have overlooked something though, so please let me know if you run into any problems. Email was especially irksome, so it may be best if you post below, just in case it's still wonky.

With the new server, I noticed a lot of spam was being sent via automated wordpress and other things. Apparently at some point I upgraded something and forgot to lock the email back down as I had in the past. I've done that again now, so if you're having errors with your PHP scripts being unable to send mail, you may not have a properly configured .esmtprc file. See this post for details: http://xepher.net/forum/index.php?topic=626.msg6855#msg6855

Also, you will get warnings about the SSH server key having changed. This is expected as it's a new server. Likewise, the cert for SSL email (imap/smtp) and https has changed as well. This is self signed and will generate warnings. This is expected, but obviously don't trust my server with your credit card info and stuff. :-)

Right, I just got an SSH error, that would explain it.  Figured I should check before I replaced the key.

Yes, you will see a new SSH server key (and warning about identification) but your private keys should still work. I considered migrating the old server key, but this is an entirely new system, and it was time to generate one of the fancy new elliptical-curve based ones anyway.

I forgot to ask, does this mean we have IPV6 capability yet?

The server does have IPv6 networking now. That said, I haven't had a chance to play around with it and experiment, and so DNS and other systems aren't yet set up for it.
