Hi, Monks, I wonder who has this kind of experience.
I have an existing server running Ubuntu 12.04. Over the years, we have installed a lot of modules from both Ubuntu repository and by CPAN command. Now I want to move to 16.04.
Is there a way to build a large Debian package that contains my server source code and all the CPAN modules my code depends on, as well as all the dependencies of those CPAN modules? so that I can drop this large Debian package in a fresh installed Ubuntu 16.04 to create a live server? And other people can also use this package to have an environment same as mine?
I wonder whether this is even possible because some of the package are not from Ubuntu repository. Many thanks!
