tgz ubuntu backup from amd -> different intel computer
I have a tgz backup of the entire installation of an amd ubuntu 10.04 server. Now, when the computer said a final farewell, I wonder how I could restore to an intel computer?
Should I try to extract the files to the root and hope for the best? Or, should I rather install the server from scratch, and try to copy in the backupfiles some way? Should I rather install a newer version right away?
I have apache, php, mysql, rails (redmine) and webmin installed (these are the most important parts).
