Need asap help: Web only transfer to vps.

#1 Postby crownin » Mar 08, 2011 1:21 pm

Hello,

I have one dedicated server at the moment where xfilesharing pro 1.8 is installed on. I like to move web to a vps server so there will be less load,

This is how I think I need to do it:
I need to move all script files to vps & then in Servers tab, I just need to edit domain name to ip/~filecrow.

Please correct me and give install steps if I'm wrong.

Thank you.

I am actually trying to do something similar as well. I have xfilesharing pro with video mod already running the script/db and videos/files on one dedicated machine.

What I want is to use my dedicated machine to serve files/videos serving them using NGINX.
And have the front-end/script/database on another dedicated machine running apache.

Is there much to change in the script for this procedure?

Not much. Just copy and set same chmods to all scripts, then dump/import SQL database to new server, then change domain DNS record to new IP, then update fileserver URLs to old IP instead of main domain.

A lot of steps, but nothing complicated if you're know what u're doing.

Thanks for the reply. I do want to verify a few more things

Server 1- Current Server (Files/videos stay at this server)
Server 2- New Server for only the front end/mysql

When I complete my DNS changes and move the xfilesharing script files over to server number 2, I would like to only upload the files to server number 1, so when I will be going to www.mywebsite.com and uploading a file through the http upload will the file be going through the 2nd server in other words will the server used for my front end be eating bandwidth when I am uploading a file through the site, or will it be going straight to server 1 where the ffmpeg conversion of the video take place?

Also what happens to my old file urls when I do this switch? Since the server will not have a domain anymore I will only be using the IP, does everything still stay the same?

you can assign a subdomain to that ip & use it for your download links
