Upgrade from potato to debian
I am trying to get my system upgraded from potato to woody. The
servers in question are production servers. I have mysql databases and more
such programs running off of these servers. How would a dselect upgrade
affect all of this? Does an upgrade affect Apache web service? I will take
a complete back-up of my systems. I will use tar for this purpose.
I have been reading the mailing lists for related problems and the
upgrade manual as well
However, at the end of this document it says that the kernel is not
upgraded to a newer version? How would it affect if I don't upgrade the
kernel to 2.4 at all?
I would love get some pointers from all you gurus before I dive into
upgrading my systems.
