I have inherited on old Fedora 14 box that I need to get updated. Looking at migrating it to the latest Ubuntu server. Need help/suggestions for things I need to watch out for and any migration tools that will help with the move.
Would I be better off sticking with Fedora since that is what it is currently running? I do understand Fedora is the latest and greatest and is updated every six months so it may not be the best for a full time webserver/mailserver. What is your opinion?
It is running sendmail with mailscanner, spamassassin, mailwatch etc. along with an older copy of Horde/Imp for the webmail. This will all need to be moved to something else as well since I believe Horde/Imp is no longer being updated. Are there tools for migrating the existing mail on the server? This is very important as there is a lot of mail. It appears to be stored in /var/spool/mail and under the home directories of each user.
As for moving accounts/passwords over easily, is this possible? Are there any good websites that can assist with this? I have been thru the tutorial on setting up postfix under ubuntu here by linuxbabe and that will be a great help. I want to use postfix and possibly iredmail for the webmail.
Any thoughts, suggestions, pointers to tutorials on doing any of this would be great apprecateid.
