If you have an existing BinaryLane server in Brisbane or Sydney and would prefer to run it from Melbourne, you can do so by following these steps:


  1. Login to mPanel and go to "Add Cloud Serverpage to purchase a new VPS in Melbourne (with the same configuration as your existing server).
  2. Shut down your existing VPS (e.g. using the "poweroff" command over SSH)
  3. After selecting your existing server in mPanel, go to the Backups area and create a backup.
  4. Still within the Backups area of your existing server, select the backup and choose "Clone".
  5. Select your new Melbourne server as the destination and wait for restore to complete.
  6. Go to the management dashboard in mPanel for your Melbourne server
  7. Login using the VNC console as root and delete the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules  
  8. Reboot your new Melbourne server to activate its new network configuration.
  9. Confirm the new Melbourne server is working and update your DNS records
  10. Cancel the old server.
