I have a headless Fedora 15 (without GUI) box. With the following partition structure:
$ df -T -h Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on rootfs rootfs 49G 2.8G 46G 6% / udev devtmpfs 1.7G 4.0K 1.7G 1% /dev tmpfs tmpfs 1.7G 0 1.7G 0% /dev/shm tmpfs tmpfs 1.7G 604K 1.7G 1% /run /dev/sda1 ext4 49G 2.8G 46G 6% / tmpfs tmpfs 1.7G 0 1.7G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup tmpfs tmpfs 1.7G 0 1.7G 0% /media /dev/sda5 ext4 388G 35G 334G 10% /var /dev/sda2 ext4 28G 1.7G 25G 7% /home
I am tired of Fedora Project's policy of 12-14 month support cycle (they may have their reasons) and intend to migrate to something more stable like Scientific Linux or CentOS. Most of my data is in
/var (MySQL, Redis & Apache Docroot) and
Is it possible that I can migrate from fedora to other RH family distro by preserving the directories
/home and do so remotely? (Under dire circumstances I am willing to carry a monitor and keyboard to it.) If yes, then what are the steps for the same?
