    depending on the data you have on the server, it might as well be easier/quicker to backup that data and install a fresh recent ubuntu.
    you can also upgrade of course.

    Can't you use Ubuntu 12.04? It's LTS and supported.

    Or if you want an old version as *server*, you can use 10.04 (server only)

    When you have a fresh install of 12.04.3 server version you can add the complete LAMP stack with one command:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lamp-server^
