Ubuntu 13.10 is out of support (a while back, I know) so about time to upgrade my personal servers to 14.04 LTS – just in time for 16.04 🙂
Only two minor gotchas.
Gotcha #1 – Digital Ocean mirrors
OK, to get the upgrade process to work, I needed to revert the APT sources from the Digital Ocean mirrors back to standard Ubuntu old releases:
## EOL upgrade sources.list # Required deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ CODENAME main restricted universe multiverse deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ CODENAME-updates main restricted universe multiverse deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ CODENAME-security main restricted universe multiverse # Optional #deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ CODENAME-backports main restricted universe multiverse
Gotcha #2 – Apache include file changes
Secondly: Apache, when reading /etc/apache2/apache2.conf now expects the “.conf” filename extension:
# Include the virtual host configurations: #before upgrade = IncludeOptional sites-enabled/* #after upgrade = /IncludeOptional sites-enabled/*.conf
