Versions are:

  • Ubuntu server version is 10.04

  • PHP version is 5.4.7

  • Mysql version is 5.1.69

  • Apache server version is 2.4.3

Now, I would like to update to Ubuntu 14.04 but no update PHP, Mysql and Apache. If I update, is there any compatibility issue?

  • Welcome to AskUbuntu! One note to add, as this is your first post, try to make sure everything is easy to read for the helpers to understand what you mean. – Steam gamer Dec 21 '15 at 12:34

If you already have them, do a dist-upgrade without touching those existing packages Exclude packages from `apt-get upgrade`

  • I don't believe it's a duplicate. It might have a similar solution, but it won't be clear why it's a duplicate unless you already know the answer. – Micheal Johnson Feb 3 '16 at 8:14

Open terminal (by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T) and run this command:

sudo apt-get install tasksel

after finish run this command

sudo tasksel

then select lamp using space bar and go on the installing instructions.

  • -1 This doesn't go into the need to maintain the exact current versions of the packages of the LAMPP stack as described in the question. OP isn't asking how to install any LAMPP version after the release upgrade. – David Foerster Dec 24 '15 at 9:50

There shouldn't be a compatibility issue with Ubuntu 14.04. If you upgrade, your server software will be updated too. (If you specifically don't want to upgrade the server software, then don't upgrade Ubuntu because trying to use an older version of software with a newer Ubuntu version is always a fight against the package manager.)
