Most of it went easier than I expected and there were a few speed bumps along the way but I'm happy to report that it all worked out in the end. Even better, the site runs faster than I had anticipated. It's still slow, but there is a lot of low hanging fruit that is waiting to be plucked and optimized. I periodically kick the Pi's power supply on accident, so if the site is down that's likely why. I love the site and if not for the low amount of traffic that the unit can handle, I would continue to use it as my primary site.
