    Update debian 8

    Is there a safe and easy way to update/upgrade debian8.01 to the latest 8 version (8.08?) without do a complete reinstall from all the backups?

    Thanks!

    Hello Patrick,

    In order to upgrade Debian please use the official way from its developers using apt/apt-get, more information: https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/d...todate.en.html

    There is no need to reinstall a server with Debian at all as even its major-versions can be upgraded in place.

    If you complete OS major-version upgrade you might need to run (it's not required if you only upgrade 8.01 to 8.08):

    Code:
    cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/
    ./build update
    ./build clean
    ./build all d
    to get software compiled against newer libraries.

    Sorry for the late reply. Made a backup, did a apt-get update, most things seems to work but did a custombuild update to make sure later that night things didn't get wrong. 4 weeks later everything works still fine. Nog looking out for the deb8 to deb9 support :-) Thanks for ypur reply.
