2020-10-21 Upgrading Devuan linux from ascii to beowulf 5 months ago
I am upgrading Devuan linux installations from ascii to beowulf to get newer packages and continued security updates. There is only one package where I really want a newer version: openssl, so I can start using TLSv1.3. This upgrade is just as simple as the upgrade from Devuan jessie to ascii three years ago. Just change the release name version and use apt update and apt dist-upgrade commands. Today I did the development webserver and apache didn't start afterwards. I found out I need to enable php7.3 by hand, in the previous configuration php7.0 was enabled. A thing to keep in mind when upgrading the production webserver.
