How to get my server operating system (OS) up-to-date, i.e. to Ubuntu 18.4 or even 16.4 would be ok.
As Ubuntu 14.4 (aka Trusty Tahr) approaches end of life (EOL) which is 30 April, 2019, we are faced with either paying Canonical for extended security maintenance (ESM) or upgrading our OS. Needless to say the OS upgrade is the desired path.
However, the OS upgrade has been an exercise in futility. At this point we’re facing the ESM fees because we have yet to discover how to migrate OpenEMR to a current Ubuntu OS.
I’ve read everything I can find and tried everything I can think of without succeeding in getting a usable system on 16.4.
This ends with errors indicating it can’t update the OpenEMR package and a disk that won’t boot.
Running the 4.2.2 package upgrade with PHP5 to get the database up to speed in hopes we can create a backup that we can restore to a fresh 4.2.2 install on 16.4 but the restore fails.
Ran the 5.0.0 package upgrade with PHP5 and made a backup but it will not restore to a 5.0.0 on 16.4 either.
Since we can’t run the Upgrade packages that use PHP7 how are we supposed to get off 14.4?
I’m using OpenEMR version 4.2.0(4)
I’m using: FireFox 60.6.1esr (32-bit)
I’m using: Ubuntu 14.4
