RE: Upgrade Ubuntu
Greetings MickeMM,
Probably you can update to 14.10 without problems (my first Sentora install was on 14.10, but was only active a few hours).
However please consider the LTS version (14.04) as it has longer period of support without drastic changes that might break your server setup (read more at: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LTS).

RE: Upgrade Ubuntu
Oh, 14.02.2 LTS won't give you any problems, I'm using 14.04.2 myself.
Go ahead ant upgrade! (I thought you wanted to move to 14.10...)

Yes it is do-release-upgrade as root (read more at: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/...ading.html)

Leave us your feedback after you do it Wink

RE: Upgrade Ubuntu
Make a backup first! I'm not sure that it won't break during an upgrade of OS. Sentora is made to install on 14.04, but it makes it's configs on the fly during install depending on OS requirements. I tried a 12.04->14.04 upgrade with Sentora installed and it was not fun. I had to answer a LOT of questions during the upgrade and Sentora did not work after doing so. (Although I may have missed some of the questions.)
Some of the questions had to do with keeping original configs or replacing with newer.

After all that mess, I would suggest back everything up, install fresh 14.04, then re-install Sentora and then add the sites/databases from your backup.

 * Restarting web server apache2                                         [fail]
 * The apache2 configtest failed.
Output of config test was:
apache2: Syntax error on line 214 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Could not open configuration file /etc/apache2/httpd.conf: No such file or directory
Action 'configtest' failed.
The Apache error log may have more information.

RE: Upgrade Ubuntu
Upgrading from 14.04 to 14.04.2 should NOT have the same issues as from 12.x to 14.x
I'm sorry I did not recommend the backups, that is something you should always do, even if not updating.
Regarding your apache error, should be easy.

Just create the httpd.conf file:
touch /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

*Please make backups, and I'm sorry for not warning about it... now I feel bad...*

RE: Upgrade Ubuntu
Oh...
I misread the version on the first post and thought until now it was 14.04...
I should pay more attention.
I'm really sorry.
Good everything went ok.
Thank you for understanding.
