We have updated the available VPS images with the following versions:

  • Ubuntu 11.04
  • CentOS 5.7

Both OSes are available on 32 and 64 bit versions. The images include the latest stable PHP version available: 5.3.8 at the time of this post.

There is a new change worth mentioning in these images: from now on, PHP is installed using deb (Ubuntu) and rpm (CentOS) packages, so upgrading to the next stable version will be a matter of running apt-get upgrade php53 in Ubuntu and yum upgrade php53 in CentOS. Soon, we will also make this deb and rpm packages available for anyone to download, stay tuned to our blog.

For those of you who want to use the new images, you can get one by rebuilding your server. Make sure to backup all your files since rebuilding will delete all files. To rebuild your server: login to the VPS Control Panel, select the server you want to rebuild, click Rebuild and choose your new VPS image. Repeat: Make sure you backup your files and database first!

And since this will probably be our last post of 2011: Happy New Year!
