[EP-tech] EPrints on Ubuntu Server -- can I safely update to new release of server without losting EPrints?


A year or two ago, I had Eprints running on an Ubuntu server.  The Update Manager kept alerting me to the fact that a new release of the server was available.  Eventually, I boldly decided to upgrade.  However, after the upgrade had completed, I found I had completely lost Eprints.

Is there a way of upgrading an Ubuntu server while preserving Eprints?

Kind regards,
