To view hda’s partition table please run ‘fdisk -l /dev/hda’ which should show something like this: Disk /dev/hda: 60.0 … Read more

Moving Linux to remote server (over ssh via third server)

Source: server running rather obsolete Fedora Core 1 with Apache, sendmail, ftp and other stuff. Target: any Linux server with at least one hard drive of appropriate disk space installed (in this case target server was running Knoppix). Third server: any ssh running system. First of all it’s necessary to get all servers to be accessible to each other via ssh. Read your distribution’s manual to find out how to achieve it. There are several possible ways to move Linux to another server by means … Read more
