I'm migrating to a new server, dual CPU's with 8 cores each, 16 gigs ram, the whole shebang.
Current server is 32 bit linux.
Trying to migrate to 64 bit linux (i.e. installing that as the base, then moving software up to the new platform). Getting all sorts of headaches that I suspect have to do with the change in platform.
Does 64 bit really matter than much? I want the horsepower out of this machine over the long term, but maybe this isn't worth the headaches.
Or what about if I started off with 32 bit, then did an upgrade of the OS, is that likely to work?
