Today, I need to spin up a new hosting server (not for this instance) and get it properly configured. And maybe get the control panel software on it. Maybe just maybe this weekend, try migrating one of my accounts to it.

Spun up and now getting the control panel software on it.

My previous provider changed hands and they now want to charge me a significant sum that used to be included in the managed server fees. I mean, that's why I was paying for a fairly expensive plan.

Control panel installed and mostly configured.

A month later and I’m in the process of moving all the accounts over to it. Good times. And it’s actually been mostly painless. A few things have cropped up—like when people tell me they’ve swapped up the name servers for their domains, but haven’t. That’s been it, though. Mostly painless.

I dread when it’s time to do a massive upgrade to this instance. I have no clue as to what I’m doing. Just to be transparent. 😅

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
— "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1830
