is it an LVM volume?
We've got a debain server hosting both our website and moodle installation. It's been running now for a few years stable until recently.
Our moodle has surpassed our hd capacity.
Got a spanky new hd for it to sit on is there any quick simple way to ghost move the installation on the new drive? Suggestions please,
is it an LVM volume?
Post the output of:
Code:df -h; mount; cat /etc/debian_version

You could always use it as a place to start the migration to a new version?
Backup the moodle database and files and reapply on the new server?
Im getting the feeling that it's prob going to be better to install fresh (current) and migrate.Code:intranet:~# df -h; mount; cat /etc/debian_version Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 71G 64G 3.9G 95% / tmpfs 1014M 0 1014M 0% /lib/init/rw udev 10M 752K 9.3M 8% /dev tmpfs 1014M 0 1014M 0% /dev/shm /dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro) tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755) proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) procbususb on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw) udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755) tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev) devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)
If I was to start afresh would you recommend debain again or try another distro? Im fairly limited using nix just tend to google how too's which works wonders.
While im thinking on is there any distro that will sit happy on a hyper v server?
I think only Redhat/Oracle are supported on HyperV.
don't worry though - adding a disk to this will be easy we can talk you through it.
First shut down your server and add the new disk ( I assume only one disk, your not setting up a RAID array).
When the new disk is in we will set up an LVM volume, format it and mount it somewhere temporarily, move your files over then mount it in the correct place.
add the disk then run this
Code:fdisk -l | grep '^Disk'
