Are there any caveats to moving a mailman installation from one
server to another? So far, I thought of basically the following:
- Shutdown sendmail on both servers (so messages don't get
received/sent during down time)
- Switch DNS IP to new server
- Install fresh copy of Mailman on the new server (usual setup)
o This is where it's somewhat blank to me, can I just tar/gz up the
old installation of Mailman from the old server (sans stuff like
~/Mailman, ~/cgi-bin, etc.), and untar it on the new server? Or
do I have to selectively go through the files and grab only what
- Set up aliases
- Configure webserver
- Restart the whole shebang and hope everyone's happy...
Both servers are the same when it comes to the OS that's on it, so
that won't be a problem.
I'm sure I've forgotten something here...but, that's why I'm asking.
