Upgraded server to Debian 9 (stretch) #debian

๐Ÿ•™๏ธŽ - 2017-06-19

I upgraded my home server to Debian 9 (stretch) today - as stretch was released during the weekend.

The upgrade was uneventful - just the way I like it.

Only two things broke severely:

And then there were a couple of hickups with older websites, and I had to upgrade the website of Feedbase to Spock 0.12.0, which took a little fiddling.

But overall I think this is the smoothest Debian upgrade yet. Kudos!

Updates: The website has been fixed by switching from running it under mod_perl and using FastCGI instead.

The problem with ejabberd and Prosody TLS connections I fixed by patching an Erlang package: Patched ejabberd (erlang-p1-tls) to support multiple ECDH curves.
