Upgrading Debian Squeeze to Wheezy

I’ve recently done a few upgrades of Debian from Squeeze to Wheezy and it’s a pretty uneventful process.

I recommend following these instructions at HowtoForge.

The only major issue was that Mysql was removed after the upgrade. My data was still there but I had to install mysql-server.

apt-get mysql-server

Also you might get an annoying messaging when running PHP that looks something like this.

Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib/php5/20100525/suhosin.so'

To fix this run

dpkg -P php5-suhosin

Because I run some stuff using mod_perl, I had to reinstall a bunch of modules, but no big deal.

Other than these issues, it went pretty smooth.

Kudos to the Debian team for releasing another solid Debian version. That’s been my go-to Linux distro for at least 10 years and I’ve never been disappointed.
