Lift and shift: Modernising a legacy LAMP application with systemd-nspawn

Tens of thousands of lines of PHP 4. MySQL 5.0.51a. Apache 1.3. No source control. All running on a single server, last updated with the release of Debian 5.0 "lenny" almost 15 years ago today. This talk will show you how to drag an application of yesteryear, kicking and screaming, into modernity.

Keywords: systemd-nspawn, Debian EOL, LAMP.
