Sat. 27 June 2020: Movement of www.UNIX.com to new server
On Saturday, 27 June, 2020 I plan to move the legacy (reference) site ```www.unix.com``` to a different server.
The new location is currently running fine and tested.
The new app is in a Docker container I created which supports end-of-life (EOL) PHP 5.6; and so the legacy forum app and man pages will continue to run; but it will be a little slower because the temporary staging site I'm moving it to has only 32 GB RAM and an older 8 Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 3365 processor, versus the current site of 64 GB RAM and 8 core Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz. Plus, all apps in Docker containers are slower than on "bare metal".
The reason for this temporary move is as follows:
Cost. This server is too expensive for standalone serving only the legacy unix forum app.
Staging: Moving to an existing server in my inventory, temporarily.
Reliability. Later will move to new H/W with new SSD drives and a newer CPU.
Consolidation: Consolidate other apps on the new hardware (less servers to manage).
Tech Refresh: Will more-than-likely move to new H/W running Ubuntu* **20.04 LTS** (but not this month).
I think this H/W move will take less than 5 minutes on Saturday, as the legacy app has been tested on the temporary staging hardware:
