I updated Ubuntu on the Digital Ocean droplets that run my web sites. They were running 16.04, support for which runs out in April of 2021. Now they're running 18.04.

Next, I need to upgrade with version 2.0.x of Pleroma. Currently running 1.1.x. Though I see no real reason to upgrade. It's rock-solid stable. That machine has only booted once, and it was a Digital Ocean problem, not done by me.

I wrote a nifty Bash CGI-BIN script, so that I could easily verify which web site I was talking to during the transition. It shows the hostname, the version of Ubuntu (/etc/issue), and uname -a. It has a source/script toggle link at the bottom of the page, so you can see how it works.
