Migrating from Centos to Debian

Little introduction

Frustrated as most of you, who has been with CentOS for many years, I have decided to head to Debian. This page will contain multiple useful commands and tips, that I had to learn and adopt during exploring and migrating to Debian.


init.d scripts

apt-get install sysv-rc-conf
