I upgrades all 3 sites to the new Venus planet code.

I just copied the configs over from the old instances. I left the old
code in the sample place, in case you need to go back and get something.
The new stuff is in /var/www/$site/venus. A few sites in the
configurations gave errors when they were updating, so I commented them
out. You should probably go look at the *.ini files to see if you can
bring back any of those sites.
