So, I repurposed my old desktop a Core 2 Quad with 8G of RAM into a new server. The old server was an POS Athlon dual core running Hyper-V so the server itself only had 1G of memory to work with and, while it was solid as a rock and hadn’t had a single crash in all the years it was running, if you asked it to do two things at once, it slowed to a crawl.
I skipped doing a virtual this time. It’s just another layer in the mix and one I had very, very little experience with, so instead of risking screwing up migrating the virtual, I just built a server from scratch. Hopefully I haven’t missed anything.
Until I get all the files migrated off the old server, it will remain online, but as of now, you are reading this from the new box. Please let me know if you have any issues or see anything funky.
