Maybe this has been already said somewhere, but what’s the recommended way to upgrade ? Are the dist-upgrade good enough? Or is it better to just transfer the files that has been modified manually and begin from scratch again and replace those files ?
it would probably be easier and less bandwidth heavy to download the new whonix ova/tar files and import your custom files. here’s a quick means of doing that.
- add a new virtual hd to your old whonix instances.
- copy the custom files that you need to the new virtual hd.
- download the new whonix tar/ova files.
- install the new whonix images.
- attach the virtual hds to which you copied your cutom files to the new installed whonix instances.
- copy your files over as needed.
you’ll have a less bloated whonix install, less risk of various upgrade issues, and won’t have to go through multiple lengthy download procedures with the dist-upgrade instructions. just confirm that you’ve successfully copied all of the custom files you need to the new whonix installations before you delete your old images.
Okey that’s what I thought but I wasn’t sure. Thanks.
