As long as you ensure you install the bootloaded (grub) on the hard disk you're installing Ubuntu on, there is absolutely no problem!) I've even installed Ubuntu on an external hard drive on my own machine and then moved that to the internal hard drive of another machine multiple times and it just works (unlike Windows)

The best option, if you can, is to set up key-based SSH authentication on the remote server, and use a key with no passphrase on the client. This will allow the SSH connection, which rsync uses when you use that [user@]server:path notation, to happen without prompting for a password. Ubuntu documentation for doing this is at: ...

The answer to your first question is yes, but then replacing your previous hdd with the newly installed hdd may cause severe problems. As an example consider that you installed Ubuntu in new HDD when connected externally and grub was installed in old HDD, when you remove old HDD and replace it with new HDD, it won't boot any OS because grub is missing. If ...

Yes, that should be fine. The Mint backup tool is easy enough to install on Ubuntu (and it might be a good idea, it's a useful tool) but it's not needed. It simply copies your files. It doesn't use any kind of proprietary format that would make it hard for you to access them. The choices it provides you with are to either copy the files as they are or to ...

Aptik is really good. By using it and Deja-Dup I have just blown away a system (on purpose) and recreated it in only a hour or so. Here's a picture of the Aptik screen. I've used the first 3 buttons to save my configuration and reload it onto the new system. The 4th button seems to largely duplicate Deja-Dup's functionality, so I didn't use it. The ...

Well, I did some research to find out that my conception was wrong; and I do have an answer. The Linux/Ubuntu /dev/ folder contains a list of device IO interfaces, not so much files. Here's a link to where I discovered this. So, instead of reading a file, and dumping it to a file, I was reading an output stream, and dumping it to a file. Of course, output ...

This worked for me when connecting remotely to a machine and logging in/out. Will test in a few hours at home with a full reboot, will edit with my findings I also found this which seems to do exactly the same. I have never thought about this feature before and glad you brought it up! EDIT I run Gnome 3 and wasn't able to find the setting as mentioned in ...

Yes, you can utilize Filezilla for backing up your files. For further detail procedures, you may refer to Install WordPress on Ubuntu. There are several backup WordPress plugins available over the Internet, you can find the most suitable one for conducting this procedure.

It looks like grub-mount is trying to edit a read only file system and has hung. It should be safe to send a signal with kill to ask it to give up (send 15, and if needed after a few seconds 2, and if needed after a few seconds 1, if it's still running use -9 and report it to the maintainer) (if the pid number changes start with 15 again ) It's likely to ...

Just kill that leftover grub-mount process. This happened to me as well, and there was no apparent negative side-effect to the killing, because the relevant update-grub process had already abandoned it - you can easily verify that by seeing how it the leftover grub-mount process no longer has a parent.
