I forgot to reupload the old modified htacess file which was causing my backend of my website to get HTTP 500 errors. It took me a while to figure out. Aside from my htacess forgetfulness, drupal was pretty easy to upgrade.
1. Back up my website and website database.
2. Download the Drupal installer and unzip it to my computer.
3.Disable all modules and put site in offline mode 3. Delete all files on my Drupal directory folder.
4. Put all the files I extracted to the Drupal directory on my ftp server.
Ubuntu 9.04 is Ubuntu , which is a linux distro based on debian, latest Operating System version. The first thing I notice that it is easier to install then 8.10 since in 8.10 you had to click on a dot on a map to set the time for your OS. The installation was very straight forward. I made a 40 GB partition on a 200GB Hard drive with the built in disk partitioner. The partioner work flawlessly. I did not experience any data loss. The install took about an hour on a computer with a Intel Pentium 4 running at 1.6 GHz CPU, and 512 MB of DDR ram, 50x CD-rom, and 200GB 7200rpm Hard drive, and a Nvidia 128 MB hard drive. Everything work when the install finished. I did not had to find drivers for the Sound card and video card. I did not have to install firefox, openoffice, and media players manually since everything came preinstalled after Ubuntu was finish installing. It was very simple to update Ubuntu 9.04 . It was as simple as 8.10.
The Biggest improvement in Ubuntu 9.04 I notice over 8.10 is the start up and shut down time. It only took a minute or less on an older computer. The operating system also came with nicer themes compared to previous versions.
