11.10 To 12.04 Backup/Upgrade
I'd like to upgrade to 12.04 but I've had some really bad experiences with upgrades (vs. fresh installs). I've backed up my 11.10
I'm running a web server on my desktop distro that has an SQL database and I'd rather not mess with it if at all possible. How do I make sure that the server is backed up as well?
If everything goes the way it should, will the upgrade affect my server or will it work around it?
Desktop - Dell Inspiron 4700, Intel P4 3ghz, 768gb RAM, 80gb HDD Running 10.04
Laptop - Toshiba Satellite A135 Intel CeleronM 1.6ghz, 512mb RAM, 80gb HDD Running 9.04
Because the Laptop won't accept any upgrade...
