Add support for newer versions of Ubuntu


#1

Some cloud providers are starting to drop Ubuntu 14 as an option for new instances… Please consider adding support for Ubuntu 16 or 18

Yeah, been following that issue myself. I understand there’s a lot of work involved, but just had to move hosting providers as had an issue with my 14.04 instance and couldn’t re-image or create a new instance as they’ve stopped the ability to use 14.04 from their panel.

Managed to restore a backup on a Digital Ocean droplet, but how soon till they remove that as well?

If you need mail server and cannot wait for MIAB to be ready for ubuntu 16/18, try mailcow - it is a docker container mail server so it can run on virtually any docker-compatible system.

I ended up with a vps from OVH at €2,99/month


#6

Thanks! Actually implemented this before with a service I used to work at, prior to their migration to docker. Just used to using MIAB, but I will consider this.

The main thing stopping me from switching to that is not being entirely clued up in Docker. I can pull a container, upgrade an existing container and all that, but should probably play around a bit more.


#7

mailcow is 100% in docker afaik. (Minus user data, which is in volumes stored on host.) It’s easy to migrate to as well as mailcow has a tool to pull IMAP accounts from other servers.

That being said, this forum isnt for mailcow so I’ll leave it as that.


#8

Not to keep this discussion about another product going but I also had to move to mailcow due to needing a newer LTS distro :frowning:
I don’t like docker and I vastly prefer Mailinabox. I hope newer distros will be supported soon!


#9

Docker is awesome though! MIAB needs docker support! That would clear all these issues.


#10

Docker is fine and all but I’d rather this model as it doesn’t rely on a single package to work. Also, https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17804916


#11

I’ve never once had to login to anything to use docker. Not the daemon, or the site.
