Hi folks, I have a FreeBSD 4.4 webserver that's been working fine for nearly 2 years. This computer was purchased from a systems integrator, so I am not intimately familiar with how it was configured.
I would like to build another machine that would be nearly identical, having all the same software and functionality, but use the latest production OS. Is there a cheat sheet somewhere that would give the salient information to do this? What are the *SEQUENTIAL* steps to accomplish this? I've looked at the handbook & did a Google search already: http://www.FreeBSD.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/handbook.html ("duplicate server" OR "clone server" OR "copy server configuration") site:FreeBSD.org http://tinyurl.com/ulft Are there some config files that I could duplicate? How about my IPFW firewall? How can that be transferred? Are there other programs like IPFW, that aren't listed in pkg_info? Here's the output I get when I run pkg_info: ============================================================================= # pkg_info Mesa-3.4.2_1 A graphics library similar to SGI's OpenGL adptfbsd_304 Adaptec RAID Management Software v3.04 amanda-18.104.22.168 The Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver bash-2.05 The GNU Bourne Again Shell cups-22.214.171.124 The Common UNIX Printing System fam-2.6.4 A file alteration monitor gettext-0.10.35 GNU gettext package iconv-2.0_1 Charset conversion library and utilities jpeg-6b IJG's jpeg compression utilities kde-2.2 The "meta-port" for KDE 2 kdebase-2.2_2 Base modules for the KDE integrated X11 desktop kdegames-2.2 Games for the KDE integrated X11 desktop kdegraphics-2.2 Utilities for the KDE integrated X11 desktop kdelibs-2.2_3 Libraries for KDE2 kdemultimedia-2.2 Utilities for the KDE integrated X11 desktop kdenetwork-2.2 Network modules for KDE2 kdeutils-2.2 Utilities for the KDE integrated X11 desktop koffice-1.1,1 Office suite for KDE2 lcms-1.07_1 Light Color Management System -- a color management library libaudiofile-0.2.2 A sound library for SGI audio file libiconv-1.7_1 A character set conversion library libmng-1.0.2 Multiple-image Network Graphics (MNG) reference library libwww-5.3.1 The W3C Reference Library libxml2-2.4.3_1 Xml parser library for GNOME linux_base-6.1 The base set of packages needed in Linux mode p5-Net-1.0703 Perl5 modules to access and use network protocols pcre-3.4 Perl Compatible Regular Expressions library pico-4.0 PIne's message COmposition editor pkgconfig-0.8.0 An utility used to retrieve information about installed lib png-1.2.0 Library for manipulating PNG images python-2.1.1 An interpreted object-oriented programming language qt-2.3.1 A C++ X GUI toolkit teTeX-1.0.7 Thomas Esser's distribution of TeX & friends tiff-3.5.5 Tools and library routines for working with TIFF images trafshow-3.1_1 Full screen visualization of the network traffic uulib-0.5.13 A library for uu/xx/Base64/BinHex de-/encoding xanim-2.80.2 Play most popular animation formats and show pictures xpm-3.4k The X Pixmap library ytalk-3.1.1 A new "talk" that can talk to multiple parties at once ============================================================================= Thanks a bunch for any help you can provide!
