Server Upgrade

I was so far behind on my servers OS upgrades that I had to do a destructive dump and load to get it back to the current version on Saturday.
I almost remembered to save everything except for:

  • My current emails – destroyed by a corrupt tar file
  • All my mailman mailing lists – stored in /usr/lib/mailman if anyone else is backing up their server!

Now I just need to remember to upgrade as new versions are released so I won’t have to do all this crazy dump and load unless something major comes along.
