Need server administrator to upgrade server at ev1servers.net
I have a dual xeon 2.4 dedicated server with EV1servers using Cpanel WHM. I am interested in upgrading toa dual xeon processor 3.2 with RAID hard drives but i need to transfer all the data etc to the new server from the old. How would I do this? Anyone that can do this for me at a cost? i would like to connect all RAID drives together if its possible: (4) 250GB SATA RAID 0+1 - 500GB Usable Hard Drives. My site has already got 80 GB of data and the current drive is maxed out. Preferably id like to get the new server upgrade but i have no idea how i would transfer the 80gb and the old settings to the new server. id like as less downtime as possible. Anyone who can help me onthis please let me knowhow much it will cost and how long it would take. My email is costaroussos at yahoo .com or cal me at 213 688 8900
I aksed them if i could upgrade and they said yes but i want to add the contents / data to the new hard drive. They said i could upgrade to a 200GB hard drive, make it a master and then the old primiary can become a slave and then transfer the contents of the old primary to the new 200gb master. Ihave no idea how that works. My option is either upgrade hard drive to a 200gb and find someone to transfer the data form the old hard drive tothe upgraded one or get a new server with bigger hard drive and afaster. problem with new server is the 2 day downtime plus again id need to transfer data from theold hard drive to the new. The problem is the data transferring. I dont know how to do that without using FTP. Obviously transferring 80gb using ftp is ridiculous!
is there anyway of retaining permissions and ownerships if I get a new server with the same company and transfer the old hard drive data with my sites content to the new server's hard drive? This is all greek to me (even though i am greek). All they told me at ev1servers is that they dont manage servers and id have to do everything myself. I never done anyhting like this before!
