> If I'm reading your question right, you are basically asking where/when
to update to Ubuntu 16.04. As far as Horde is concerned, it should not make
any difference to Horde data when, or on what machine, you upgrade Ubuntu.
If it were me since you are going to start with a fresh install anyway, I
would start with the fresh Ubuntu 16.04 machine and install Horde/configure
webserver etc... and then dump/import your database/mailboxes etc...I don't
see any real reason to upgrade the old host before transferring any data.
Don't forget any VFS storage you might have outside of the database as well.
Option 2. On a VM you can test first is always the way I've gone...
