I am attempting to move my Mailinabox server from Vultr to Linode. I have followed the process listed on the site. I have created a new box on the new VPS. I have restored the latest backup to the new box, but I have not been able to get the reverse DNS set up on Linode. It talks about A records - in fact every article from Namecheap to Linode talk about A records. I had a moment of clarity and realised that the A record I’m looking for is in my box dns settings.
First, how do I change the A records when the settings are set for the old server? I can’t log into the new box location as it sends me back to the old box admin panel. Do I have to change these inside
Second, I noticed that during the box installation it is failing the Owncloud install with an error message about not being able to access the config.php file? It doesn’t give this error message on the old box when I reinstall. All the permissions look correct.
Third,I noticed that in the instructions it says to restart the server once the backup has been installed. This just ends up with the Nginx server failing to start because the SSL cert isn’t correct.
If anybody has any clues or answers to how I work around these issues that would be appreciated.
In short, the process doesn’t seem to be as potentially seamless as the instructions make it out to be and I’m wondering if anybody can give me some clues on the best way to achieve a successful outcome.
Thanks heaps in advance.
