Syscp to Froxlor Upgrade Guide

In this Howto I will do an upgrade from syscp to the fork froxlor in the current revision of 0.9.3. I hope to cover all fall sticks. But overall the upgrade is very painless and easy. Thanks a lot to guys of froxlor!
I do this as always on a gentoo host. Its your choice to use the good ebuild to install froxlor or to download it by hand. Here I will cover the manual steps.

First start with the basic stuff (download, uncompress, ...)


Froxlor – The New Syscp!

Just a short note for everyone who still deals with syscp as their server managment software:

I think you all with have recognised, that there was long time no update of syscp.
If you have followed the development commits, or the forum you will have noticed the main reason: The most active developers has left the project long ago, and now the leader is totally alone.
Ok that was the bad news.

The good news  is, that many of the former developers has now build a fork named froxlor.
They already has published some bugfix releases and currently they are working on a clean rewrite with a good framework. So lets see what the future will bring. But I am already preparing my host to be migrated to froxlor!
