    i would like to use the following to upgrade ubuntu 18.0 to 20.04 using the following.
    Procedure to upgrade Ubuntu 18.04 to 20.04

      • Create a backup of your server or vm.
      • Upgrade all installed packages of Ubuntu version 18.04 by running sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade command.
      • Reboot the Ubuntu Linux system by tying the sudo reboot command
      • Install the Ubuntu update tool, run: sudo apt install update-manager-core
      • Start the upgrade procdure, run: sudo do-release-upgrade
      • Reboot the box, run: sudo reboot
      • Verify upgrades
    i do understand this is for ubuntu upgrade only. question is what else if anything would i need to look at? my current setup was installed using this tutorial https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial...l-pureftpd-bind-postfix-doveot-and-ispconfig/

    would this be more work then it is worth? if so i assume it would be better to do a fresh install on a new drive then transfer all the current running sites to the new drive then take it live? if this is better is there any how to's for this?

    thanks in advance

    Yes it should work if thereafter you follow the PST for Ubuntu 20.04 including changing default php to 7.4.

    I am not sure about installing in new "drive" but if you actually mean new "VM" then it is safer (I can't say better).

    There is latest ISPConfig auto install tutorial but to migrate, you need to buy the migration tool and read its readme file because I don't think there is a tutorial for it. You can ask in here for sure.
