How to resize root partition without losing data

I signed up for a promotion with my VPS vendor for a one-time fee for a permanent increase in available space. The change was made on the provider’s side – now I had to make changes on my side.
Of course the question arose how to do it, so as not to reinstall the system and not to lose data. And to keep potential VPS downtime as low as possible.

How to resolve: This build of “eAccelerator” was compiled for PHP version 5.2.14-0.dotdeb.0.

System: Debian Lenny 5.0, DirectAdmin, after successfully update php to 5.2.14 after download and comile from source eaccelerator and test by php -v I got:

This build of “eAccelerator” was compiled for PHP version 5.2.14-0.dotdeb.0. Rebuild it for your PHP version (5.2.14) or download precompiled binaries.

Bad news because actually I`ve PHP in version 5.2.14! After some research I have solutions.



./configure --enable-eaccelerator=shared --with-php-config=/usr/local/php5/bin/php-config


make install

in my case I must move compiled eaccelerator file from ย /usr/local/php5/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20090626/eaccelerator.so to php extension dir /usr/lib/php5/20060613+lfs/. (update: easier and more logical it is change extension_dir in php.ini)
