Reddit: Upgrading Linux Servers

Thursday 16th of November 2017 03:53:16 PM

Hi guys, I am interested on how you upgrade your productive server environments. Do you upgrade, or do reinstall the operating system?

On the server I talk about runs apache and django productively. The rest of the server is a giant data storage. The server was hardly touched in the last five years. Have you ever tried to do "do-release-upgrade" twice, to upgrade from Ubuntu Server 12.04 to Ubuntu Server 16.04? Is this a bad idea?

LinuxInsider: MX 17 Linux: The Best of 2 Linux Worlds

Thursday 16th of November 2017 01:00:00 PM
MX Linux-17 Beta 1, released last week, is a desktop-oriented Linux distribution based on Debian's "stable" branch. It is a cooperative venture between the antiX and former MEPIS Linux communities -- hence its breakaway name. Normally, taking a first look at an early phase beta release means taking a few hours to get familiar with the features and performance. If too many glitches appear, it can doom the early release to a negative review. However, I was familiar with earlier versions of MX Linux, and I felt it could stand up to a review.

Ubuntu: New Users, Unity Remix, 18.04 LTS News

  • How to Get Started With the Ubuntu Linux Distro
    The Linux operating system has evolved from a niche audience to widespread popularity since its creation in the mid 1990s, and with good reason. Once upon a time, that installation process was a challenge, even for those who had plenty of experience with such tasks. The modern day Linux, however, has come a very long way. To that end, the installation of most Linux distributions is about as easy as installing an application. If you can install Microsoft Office or Adobe Photoshop, you can install Linux. Here, we’ll walk you through the process of installing Ubuntu Linux 17.04, which is widely considered one of the most user-friendly distributions. (A distribution is a variation of Linux, and there are hundreds and hundreds to choose from.)
