Switch from Mac OS X to Ubuntu

Our server used to run on Mac OS X 10.11, which is very out of date. I decided to upgrade it to Ubuntu finally, taking almost a full day of downtime to do. What had to be done: fix hard drive because everything was misaligned, resize OSX's HFS+ partition which GParted doesn't like, finally install Ubuntu, install b43 which took like half an hour cause I didn't know what I was doing, install node Java and Apache, and move all the files over and fix symlinks and directory references. Overall that could have taken much less than a full day, but between sleep and school I had to take breaks. Things are likely to be broken, so let me know if something is not working. Today the Discord bot now can tell you who is on the server, so you don't even need to use your browser to go to Plan.
