As part of the 2018 station upgrade I assembled an Intel i5 based PC for use as the new k6hr.com server. I finally found the time to load and configure the O/S and associated software onto this machine. All went well through the installation and migration process and the new k6hr.com server is up and running!
WordPress was installed here one year ago next week (Dec 10) and the site has quickly outgrown the old server.
The new machine is an Intel Core i5-4460 CPU at 3.20Ghz (x4), 4GB RAM and a 500GB SSD running Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS. This new hardware is a vast improvement over the old Pentium D which only has 1GB RAM and a 32GB SSD that’s almost full. The Pentium D will live out its days as the JNOS BBS packet radio station.
At this point I consider the server configuration complete. The machine is online and the traffic is flowing!
