q re transferring mysql db from redhat to debian
i'll be moving from a RedHat server to a Debian server very soon.
despite the different linux distributions, is it ok to transfer my entire
mysql database by just copying everything in /var/lib/mysql of the RedHat
system to the Debian system? has anyone tried this before?
the reason why i don't want to do the database transfer using data
generated by mysqldump is because i want all the auto-generated record_ids
to stay the same in the new system.
any help, pointers, success stories who's been there will be greatly appreciated.
