I bought a new server which needs a debian10 or a ubuntu 18.04 installation because of a special network card driver which is not available for debian 9 ... if possible I want to keep this server (great performance) and use ubuntu 18.04 instead of debian. I have never used ubuntu before as a server installation - do you think I can use it with current IMSCP 1.5.3 and plugins like PHPswitcher, Letsencrypt & whmcs and can I migrate a IMSCP debian8 system (mariadb 10.0) into a new ubuntu 18.04 installation?
There was a topic which mentioned who you can easily migrate to another OS.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
IMSCP: latest 1.5.3
it seems there is a problem with nginx systemd startup ...Code
- Dec 04 12:23:44 host33 systemd: Starting A high performance web server and a reverse proxy server...
- Dec 04 12:23:44 host33 nginx: nginx: [emerg] bind() to xxx.xxx.xx.xx:8880 failed (99: Cannot assign requested address)
- Dec 04 12:23:44 host33 nginx: nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed
- Dec 04 12:23:44 host33 systemd: nginx.service: Control process exited, code=exited status=1
- Dec 04 12:23:44 host33 systemd: nginx.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.
- Dec 04 12:23:44 host33 systemd: Failed to start A high performance web server and a reverse proxy server
service nginx restart
works only until the next system boot
it seems ubuntu is a little uncomfortable in the basic configuration, I have already disabled a few services:Code
- sudo systemctl disable snapd.snap-repair.timer
- sudo systemctl disable snapd.socket
- sudo systemctl disable snapd.autoimport.service
- sudo systemctl disable snapd.core-fixup.service
- sudo systemctl disable snapd.seeded.service
- sudo systemctl disable snapd.service
- sudo systemctl disable snapd.system-shutdown.service
- ls -l /etc/apparmor.d/
- sudo ln -s /etc/apparmor.d/usr.lib.snapd.snap-confine.real /etc/apparmor.d/disable/
- sudo apparmor_parser -R /etc/apparmor.d/usr.lib.snapd.snap-confine.real
- sudo apparmor_status
what about this stuff ... should these be set disabled too?
any further recommendations for the basic ubuntu optimization?
