Server Migration is Easy with PHP

July 13, 2009

Recently we had to make an emergency move from our old servers (where we had been for 5-6 years) to our own dedicated server because of technical difficulties in the heads of the nerd’s who managed the servers killersites.com had been sitting on.

I will spare you the details of my server migration ordeal for now. What I want to point out, is that PHP (once again) has proven to be a great choice as the server side programming language.

PHP is consistent …

During this move, I had to deal with a bunch of web apps and scripts that included a nice buffet of technologies like:

– Perl
– PHP
– Java

.. Yes, the dreaded evil configuration hell that is J2EE!!

To make a long story short, migrating the PHP apps was a snap – copy over the files, set up the database and were off! On the other hand, I still have to get around to figuring out why the Perl and Java applications don’t want to run on the new server.

🙁

PHP continues to rock, saving me time, money and headaches.
