A fix for Ubuntu 16.04

With Ehcp 0.38.5 and later (on Ubuntu 16.04), init scripts in /etc/init.d may cause some apt update commands to fail. So, please move ehcp and that is in /etc/init.d to some other location, until this is fixed.
After this move, apt -f install command would fix the apt system.

Moving to a new harddrive - with lvm - luks encryption

In this post, I will describe how to move to a new harddrive, either server or desktop (linux).
This topic is outside the "hosting" topic, but may be useful for you.

Suppose that you have one old drive, (/dev/sda), Luks encrypted.
one new drive, bigger (/dev/sdb)

New drive has no partitions (or may have also...)

This command copies all of old drive onto new one, with a kind of progress indicator..
pv -n /dev/sda | dd of=/dev/sdb bs=128M conv=notrunc,noerror

this takes long time, depending on your old drive size.
