Announcing Support for Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

June 1, 2022

We're happy to announce support for Ubuntu 22.04 ("Jammy Jellyfish"). This latest Ubuntu Long Term Support version was released April 21, 2022.

Ubuntu is the most popular Linux distribution used for running web servers. Ubuntu does a Long-Term Support (LTS) release every two years. Ubuntu LTS releases are enterprise-grade and receive security updates from Ubuntu for five years. For 22.04, that means security updates through 2027.

You can begin installing on Ubuntu 22.04 as soon as your server provider makes Ubuntu 22.04 images available. DigitalOcean, AWS, and Google Cloud already have Ubuntu 22.04 images that you can use, and so do the vast majority of providers at this time.

Ubuntu 22.04 includes Linux kernel 5.15 LTS, which provides new features and enhancements to popular file systems, such as EXT4 and XFS. Additionally, memory management has also received notable updates in this kernel version. OpenSSL has also been upgraded to 3.0, which provides new cyptographic algorithms for enhanced security.

As with other Ubuntu versions, ServerPilot provides our own PHP, Nginx, and Apache packages so our users always have the latest versions.

If you have a server running Ubuntu 20.04, you don't need to upgrade it. Ubuntu 20.04 will continue to receive security updates and bug fixes until 2025.
