Having a Debian 9 image on OpenVZ would be great.

    Yes, it would be a great addition. Sad, that OpenVZ still lacking support for it. But whenever they officially support this OS template - we will add it.

    Maybe it's time to think about migration from OpenVZ to LXC? Another VPS providers already begin to do it.
    LXC has lot of advantages comparing OpenVZ: modern kernel (mainline, not special obsolete), modern OS containers (including Debian9 and my favorite AlpineLinux), easy container maintenance and so on///

    Having a Debian 9 image at least on KVM servers would really be great.

    Is that going to happen anytime soon?

    Hello sudo,

    Since KVM allows us to be more flexible, we are in fact planning to launch Debian 9 on our KVM VPS. However,  currently we do not have an ETA on it.

    Keep track of our social channels to know about upcoming features and changes.

    Hello
    Thank you,

    What is the simplest and most effective way to upgrade without erase the OS? Can I just change my apt source list to stretch without issue ? I do the migration like this on a real server

    Hi,

    well, the recommended way would be to re-install the OS. But in such case, all of current data would be lost if not backed up prior to the installation.

    But if you wish to try updating from Debian 8 to Debian 9, firstly make a backup and download it if something goes wrong. Moreover, take notice that the more software you have installed on your VPS currently, equally, the more chances there are that something will go wrong. The following article provided by 3rd party provides quite useful information for the upgrade, so you should definitely look into it:

    https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-upgrade-debian-8-jessie-to-debian-9-stretch

    P.S. Do not forget of making a backup before making any changes!

    Hi William, I tried but

    I guess time4vps is using transparent proxy for debian mirrors and your local repository is not right updated with stretch.
    So it's dangerous to migrate right now or we must use other domains than debian.org

    Ok works now with:

    deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main
    deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main

    deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch-updates main
    deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch-updates main

    deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ stretch/updates main
    deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ stretch/updates main

    Of course the kernel still old, very old ...

    more /etc/debian_version
    9.4
     uname -a
    Linux nostromo.xxxx 2.6.32-042stab128.2 #1 SMP Thu Mar 22 10:58:36 MSK 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Hey stealth,

    If you are using KVM based VPS, then you can upgrade the kernel version on the server manually. In case you are using any other package, the kernel can not be upgraded, unfortunately, because of virtualization limits.

    But there are a lot of errors with cgroups and kernel and at boot ssh is long to appears
    So just for fun or testing you can migrate, for working no

    Hello there,

    In this case, I recommend to open up a ticket via our Client Area:

    https://billing.time4vps.eu/tickets/new/

    We will check what kind of server you are using and will be able to help you out better with the issues you encounter.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, we are not planning to introduce LXC/LXD.

    We are planning to upgrade the current Standard and Storage VPS's, though. It should be finished in the beginning of September.
