Upgraded blog host to Ubuntu 12.04

Linode actually made this remarkably easy to do, I just had to:

  • Shut down the old vm
  • Resize its disk to be less than half of my Linode disk quota
  • Create a new 12.04 disk image, again with less than half my Linode disk quota
  • Launch the vm but now from the 12.04 image, and mount the old disk into the new server
  • Copy everything over from the old disk image


My entire installation is ad-hoc, and I probably should have taken this opportunity to restore from my hacked-up backups and make sure that that works, but instead I signed up for Linode's $5/month backup service.
