- FOG Version: 1.2.0
- OS: Ubuntu
Can I do a FOG upgrade over the top of the one there now?
@Wayne-Workman Hell, whenever I try to upgrade Ubuntu even Ubuntu gets messed up and I need to spend time to fix it.
@Wayne-Workman Thank you. Good to know. You saved me lots of headaches.

@george1421 It is 14.04 but I intend to update that too.
Don’t. It’ll be a disaster. I don’t know of anybody who has successfully updated Ubuntu without screwing up fog. I cannot tell you how many threads we have here where someone upgraded Ubuntu to the next version and all kinds of weirdness and instability and non-functioning happened. And it’s always guesswork about what happened, and it’s painfully slow to troubleshoot, and often faster to nuke and repave - and do it right. I strongly recommend against upgrading the OS.
If you want a newer OS, backup your images and database, sit aside the old FOG Server’s HDD, put in a new one, build from scratch, install fog 1.3.0 RC, and then import your images and database.

This goes hand in hand with Joe’s question.
If you are using Ubuntu LTS 14.04 or 16.04 then the path is here: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Upgrade_to_trunk if you are running anything before 14.04 you are better off to spin up a new ubuntu server with one of the stated (and supported) OS versions.
@John-Johnson what version of Ubuntu?
