The most recent version of Debian, with the code name “Bullseye”, was released today!
Debian is one of oldest Linux distributions, notorious for been stable and reliable. Used as base for many other distributions. And a popular choice to run on servers.
Debian sees a new release each two years (more or less) and in conjunction with their Long Term Support team, they promise at least 5 years of extended support for the each stable release.
I was waiting with special anticipation for this release, after recently decided to stop relying on enterprise developed distributions.
I’ll now migrate my server from Ubuntu 20.04 to Debian 11 and, therefore, it was only logic that my first step should be update the tutorials on this blog. From the initial server setup, to install Nginx, PostgreSQL and PHP, and finally installing Nextcloud, all were updated to reflect the use of Debian 11.
