All VPS servers at SDF are upgrading their clean install images as follows:
OpenBSD 6.3 OpenBSD 6.8
FreeBSD 11.2 FreeBSD 12.1
DragonFly 5.2.2 DragonFly 5.8.3
Bell Labs Plan9 386 9Front amd64 "Email Schaden"
Debian 9 Debian 10
Ubuntu 18.04.1 Ubuntu 20.10
soon .. all VPS servers to VPS members..
individual machine images will be not upgraded. If you wish to take
advantage .. follow these steps:
1. back up any data on your current vm you want to keep and transfer it to
2. shutdown your vm
3. use the 'x' option to do a fresh image copy.
4. boot your new machine
5. restore from your back up
Another benefit of upgradating particuarly for the 'console-less' images is
that you will now gain console access by default.
"I appreciate SDF but it's a general-purpose server and the name doesn't make it obvious that it's about art." - Eugen Rochko
