Some stuff that proofed to work while switching VPS to a new kernel for debian wheezy

First of all as root, create some users and give them sudo:
adduser sudo

from your local machine, use password-less ssh:

cat .ssh/ | ssh user@host 'cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys'

Mounting old file system per ssh in the new one:

sudo apt-get install sshfs
makedir /old
sshfs username@ipaddress:/remotepath /old

Apt Sources list:

cp /old/etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

Why am I getting this on a new system?

locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory

Add this to /etc/profile

export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8

And we also add a nice shortcut for recursive full text searches:

f(){ find . -type f -exec grep -nr $1 {} + ; }

Use like this: f searchterm

Install some packages (apt-get install):

dovecot-mysql dovecot-antispam dovecot-sieve dovecot-pop3d dovecot-managesieved dovecot-imapd
postfix postfix-mysql

Shuffle some files around:

cp -r /old/var/www/* /var/www/
cp -r /var/cache/torrentflux/macolo/
cp -r /old/srv /srv

cp -r /old/usr/share/tead/ /usr/share/tead
cp -r /old/usr/share/yii/ /usr/share/yii
  • Move certs from /etc/ssl and /etc/ssl/private


mysqldump -u root -p --all-databases > /root/mysqldump.sql
mysql -u root -p < /old/root/mysqldump.sql

Dont forget to udate debian-sys-maintainer password from /etc/mysql/debian.cnf and rerun dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin

/etc/init.d/mysql restart

Replace some IPs in /etc/bind/

find . -name "*.db" -print | xargs sed -i 's/'

Update some config files:


Don’t forget to install the spam plugins:

apt-get install pyzor
apt-get install razor
