[Pdbwiki-devel] Server move

Some more realistic details on space requirements:

4.2GB current size of files. These will grow significantly if we upload all
the images for the gallery pages, plus continuous growth of the pdb. I'd
estimate that we need realistically 10-15GB

1.5GB for the database. This shouldn't grow so much, let's say up to 3GB to
be on the safe side

Finally at least another 10GB to be able to create backup dumps.

So in total around 30GB. That should be surely enough for next year or so.

If we wanted to have the pdb coordinates to show then in jmol, that would be
40GB more (current size of all unzipped pdb files).

>         ServerAdmin admin at email
>         DocumentRoot /path/to/mediawiki/files
>         DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.cgi index.html.var
> </VirtualHost>
> Let's see what they say. If they are fine with it we could move this week.
> I'm in the process of copying the latest dumps now.
