I rebuilt my droplet and mistakenly chose Ubuntu 10.04 x64 vmlinuz-2.6.32-41-server. It works fine, but obviously is a very old image. I’ve found a good article on changing the kernel. It says the version I install on the command line must match the one I choose on the Control Panel. When I enter the console command apt-cache search linux-image, the newest version I see is:
linux-image-3.0.0-32-server - Linux kernel image for version 3.0.0 on x86_64
That image doesn’t appear in the control panel. Is it possible to get from 10.04 to 14.04? I’m running an Ruby on Rails low usage personal website. Is it important to upgrade?
