freebsd-update upgrade -r 11.3-RELEASE
There was no make.conf after the install at all. I added one:You can check that in /etc/make.conf. If you use OpenSSL from ports, then you will have there:
If you are unsure, you can rebuild the ports and DA packages that depend on OpenSSL too. Usually this is NOT needed when doing minor upgrades but sometimes people do it "just in case", because minor upgrades also update the base OpenSSL to newer version (it's still a minor OpenSSL upgrade, not a major one, so rebuilding is not really necessarily).Code:
## Server options ## (headless, no GUI, no X11, no sound, ..) WITHOUT_X11=YES WITHOUT_CUPS=yes WITHOUT_FONTCONFIG=yes NOPORTDOCS=yes WITHOUT_MODULES = sound linux OPTIONS_UNSET= CUPS NLS DOCS
Are you using FreeBSD with 12.0? What are the pros and cons of 12.0 with DA?It is really easy. I even managed to upgrade a FreeBSD 7.0 machine up to 12 remotely. Major upgrades (for example 10.x to 11.y) are more complicated because it requires updating all ports and software as well. Minor upgrades (like in your case) are "peace of cake" and it's all about one restart.
There we go. I didn't know that. That's huge for me as well. Thanks tons for your reply. I think 11 is going to have a lot longer life than FreeBSD people expect. There's nothing wrong with that either. The way things are, FreeBSD lifetimes are approaching that of an adult Mayfly.Most of the websites on my server depend on PHP 5.x...the base OpenSSL in FreeBSD 12 is the newer one and PHP 5.x do not work with it..
