Nah, it should be OK.  I've copied / from one place to a bigger place lots of 
times on a running system.  The main thing is don't try to 
copy /dev, /proc, /sys, and maybe a few other /blah directories now.  What 
is /srv?  Just create empty directories on the new partition.

Don't copy whatever place you have the new partition mounted.  That's an easy 
dumb-dumb to do.  Another one is if you are building a new / but want to keep 
an existing /home, then don't copy /home.

And so forth.  Just random comments without bothering to read your link.  Hope 
I'm not beating a dead horse and/or leading anyone down a wrong path by being 
lazy and shooting my mouth off without reading the whole context.
