I have my Linux server HP N36L microserver on Centos 6.9 and Virtualmin and it's pretty much EOL with extended support support has moved to Centos 7 now. Also because Centos 6 is lacking the newer PHP, MySQL and other packages which is becoming a requirement I had to install those manually on my system. As well I run XRDP which is isn't perfect I have to re-run the service etc each time I reboot to get it running again and scripts doesn't send the messages to webmin to show if the services are started stopped etc. Also I have transmission installed and a few other things I tested. So basically I kinda should be updating my server at some stage. I am loathed to run Centos 7 due to not having latest packages and having to clean install each time a new major version is released. Ubuntu Server I was originally using but I got many panics and system crashes so I moved to Centos 7 and it's been stable. I also want to run a minimal gui for GUI software Jdownloader etc and spent ages getting XRDP going which works but isn't perfect. So any advice on how to do this easily and be able to have hassle free upgrades? I can backup Virtualmin/Webmin configs easily enough. I have a Synology NAS I can setup and use as a temp VM. XRDP no idea what I am going to do about that I could just run a local X but I don't have a monitor attached to the videocard.
