Looking for advice here.
My dedicated server needs a new hard drive and Rackspace (who are Fantastic) will replace the drive and restore all files.
1. As well as a bunch of small static sites we run Wordpress, various PHP scripts which use mysql and one site built in php fusebox. If we just replace the hard drive without updating the php version what sort of issues should I expect?
Rackspace will do the whole update and restore any recommendations of any otehr steps to take before hand?
2. If it the same time as replacing the hard drive I have Rackspace update to a current PHP 5 and mysql versions what issues should I expect.
Would it be best to update the driive and at a later point update the PHP.
If mysql version is updated will that break things or is that pretty seemeless?
