Ubuntu 18.04 Upgrades

Pair Networks is in the process of upgrading all Ubuntu 16.04 servers to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

After months of careful building and testing of features in the new operating system environment, we feel that this upgrade will bring improved stability, security, and system performance

Since Ubuntu 16.04 will soon End-of-Life, this upgrade will allow us to continue providing critical security and stability updates as necessary.

Some Important Changes Include

  • PHP 7.4 is now the default version.
    PHP 5.6, 7.2, and 7.3 are also available.
    * OpenSSL support is no longer available for versions older than PHP 5.6
  • Perl 5.26 is now the default version.
    Perl 5.22 is also available.
  • Ruby 2.6 is now the default version.
    Older versions of Ruby are also available.

    Python 2.7 is also available.
