yesterday evening I installed a nextcloud instance onto a vps running buster/sympl and it was a very simple install process. So thank you whoever prepared that documentation at Sympl.
Nextcloud typically reports it wants all sorts of “special” php versions and config settings. including recommending a min of php 7.4. With Buster on 7.3 I am wondering if I just ignore this for now.
I’d prefer to avoid a dist “upgrade” to Bullseye - Sympl if possible for the moment. Given it means a new server and then rsync’ing contents from current to the new server.
1/ Any views to updating php on Sympl Buster to a latest 7.4 or even higher? I see 8.0 is knocking on the door.
2/ I missed if there is any “clue” on what to rsync over - and what not - when migrating sympl installs. Particularly for /etc/passwd / hostname / firewalls / fail2ban / various logs that might be good to keep continuity with
I’m presuming rsync’ng all of /home and /srv and /var/backup /mysql etc
Be interested to see if anybody has documented a migration or is there a script ?
