Upgrade from Ubuntu 10.04 to Ubuntu 12.04 in Liquid Web US Central Zone A

It is highly recommended that you take an image of your existing server prior to following these instructions. Doing so will ensure that if something unexpected occurs, you will be able to restore your server from the backup image.

It is also your imperative, as a Self-Managed customer, to make sure your installed applications that currently work on Ubuntu 10.04 also work on Ubuntu 12.04.
