Michael thanks for your message.I do not want to do any more
experiment on my system.
I do have an old backup with all old copies which is about 15-20 days
old with an old kernel.
Right now every thing on my server is working perfectly fine.So I am
taking a strong backup right now.
Though right now every thing is working very fine.So I do not have any
plans of any more upgrades.
Will restoring the old backup make any sense for my case or should I
leave it at this stage.
