    • Should I upgrade from 2.2.5 stone burner to 3.0 Erasmus? [More questions inside]

      Hello,

      Background info

      I am a Linux / Open Media Vault noob. I have very little experience of using the command line and tend to use the web interface as a way of managing the server.

      My Questions
      • I am just wondering if I should upgrade my system from 2.2.5 stone burner to 3.0 Erasmus?


      • What would be the easiest way to perform the upgrade?


      • How likely is it that anything will 'break'?


      Thank you in advance for answering my questions on this.
    • If you search, you will find a lot of threads related to this topic. Just click the "upgrade" tag below.

      The conclusion probably is:
      yes, do an upgrade
      if you are not experienced with linux: do a fresh install
      if you still want to do the upgrade: remove all plug-ins, do the upgrade; if everything is ok, install the plug-ins again; if you break something you can still make a new install

      make screenshots of the important parts of the GUI so you have a reference what to do during the install

      make sure you have a backup of your data (you should always have)
