How to: Porting applications from development machine to hardened server.
Posted on 2006-10-30
I am in the process of porting one of our management/metrics systems from Linux to Solaris (SPARC v9). I have moved everything over to a Solaris development system, which is identical to the hardened server on which this system will ultimately reside, but it also has gcc, make, and all the other required tools for compiling/building source. My question is: how do I go about moving the applications over to the server? I don't imagine it could be as clear cut as copying over the directory structure and files. In addition to others, I will be moving Perl, PHP, Apache, and RRDtool. Is there a standard approach to accomplishing this, or does it vary from product to product?
I appreciate any and all help.
