Ubuntu 14 update / LEMP update

  • Posted September 24, 2014


To **keep updated my droplet **(LEMP + ubuntu 14) without losing my settings / current data… What method do you recommend?

I use “sudo apt-get upgrade”. But this updates Nginx, MySQL and PHP?

How I can keep all updated with no risk to loss of configuration?

Thankl you very much!!!

sudo apt-get upgrade is the best way to upgrade your server. Ubuntu 14.04 is a stable release and should only receive well tested bug fixes at this point not entirely new versions of programs. If you want to update a single package without upgrading everything else, just run:

sudo apt-get install package_name
