    Default From 12.2 to 13.1

    Version 12.2 is no longer officially supported. It was suggested to me to upgrade to 13.1

    1. Will upgrading keep my settings? What is most important - will apache work the same? I have set up ssl and do not want to fix it again?
    Other programs are not so problematic since I can change repositories and update them.

    2. It says that 13.1 will be 'evergreen'. How can make sure to install/upgrade to evergreen version of 13.1? Is official DVD evergreen?

    thanks for any kind of advices
    Linux 4.12.14

    Yes - however, you will have to work on them.

    Online upgrade
    method

    Offline upgrade
    method



    You get a list of config files to review.
    You use "meld olfconfig newconfig" and work on them, one by one.

    Hopefully. Probably.

    Look: many applications upgrade smoothly, with few changes. Some do not,
    because the did a major overhaul in the interval. Read the release notes
    of 12.3 and 13.1 and find out what they say about possible issues.

    Normally, yes.

    When the time comes. That's... what, a year from now?
    No, it is not "official", and there is not Evergreen DVD.
