View Full Version : [ubuntu] Server 7.04 to 10.04 ....

June 21st, 2010, 08:34 PM
Running Ubuntu Server 7.04, non-GUI. Works so well that I never did any upgrades. Now I want to get NFS working on it and there are no distributables.

So, what is the best way to get this server to 10.04? If a complete reinstall, what config files should I preserve.

A complete reinstall is my suggestion, but an upgrade is theoretically possible too: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades

A clean install will yield much higher success then an upgrade Your config files should be preserved if you have a separate /home partition
