RE: [K12OSN] Retiring a K12LTSP server (back to just FC6 LAMP/Samba)



I agree, a reinstall is your best bet. It's faster and safer.

You could, however, backup a lot of the config files in the /etc
directory to make life easier for yourself. Even if you don't restore
them directly to the new server, you would have them on-hand for
reference to see how things were configured before. This would be
especially helpful for Apache and Samba configs.

Take care,
Mike

I think a reinstall would be quicker.  By the time you've worked out
want you don't need on a web server (Openoffice, Graphics, Sound, Games,
Edutainment, LTSP, etc) and uninstalled it, and worked out what you do
need (Apache) and what you might need (Mod-Perl, Mod-Python, MySQL,
Postgresql, etc), I think that you could have reinstalled it from
scratch.

I recently re-installed our FC5 LAMP server in a couple of hours
(hardware replacement just like yours) and it is humming away nicely.  I
lost no sleep wondering if I'd forgotten something when it went live.
