In Progress

Setup fresh Ubuntu server and migrate sites to it

I have about 15 web sites running on 2 servers. I am looking to consolidate the sites on one fresh Amazon EC2 instance.

The websites are built using following platforms - Ruby on Rails 3.0, Wordpress, Drupal, PHP, static HTML.

The following steps are needed -

- Install and configure nginx, RVM, Ruby 1.9.2, Rails 3 (latest), Phusion Passenger (ref. [url removed, login to view])

- Install PHP

- Install MySQL

- Install munin and god for process monitoring

- Migrate databases from the two source servers to new server

- Copy website code from the two source servers to new server

- Migrate apache configuration (vhosts, etc) for all sites from the two source servers to nginx configurations on new server

- Upgrade Wordpress and Drupal sites to latest framework versions and upgrade module versions.

- Update DNS entries to point sites to new server

- Verify that all sites work as expected (home pages load and an internal page that uses database works)



This is a straightforward project, but ONLY if you have deep experience in relevant technologies. YOU WILL FAIL to complete the project satisfactorily if you take this up as a learning project. Please provide references of previous work.

Future work:


Once this server migration is complete, I will need continued help with -

The job involves:

- Adding new servers as load balancers

- Maintenance of the Servers

- Enhancement of the Servers

- Keeping websites running

- Ensuring Backups are done & working

- Ensuring security of the servers

Skills: DNS, Linux, MySQL, Nginx, System Admin
