My goal is to selfhost some of my services :
- GNUSocial instance
- XMPP server
- This blog !!
I had to migrate all these services from my previously OVH hosted site. I won't bother you much with the details but it took me 2 days and a half to migrate it all.
I started with my email server because I like to start with difficult things. And then my GNUSocial instance. The XMPP Server was a piece of cake (If you retrieve what was parameterized in /var/lib/prosody too ...).
As for now it runs smoothly and very very silently.
The largest memory hog is mysql of course !
