I’m looking to upgrade my home server and VPS, both running a couple of LXD containers each, from 16.04 to 18.04 Bionic in the near future.
On 16.04 I use the backports apt repo to install LXD and keep it up to date. Is Snap now the recommended way to install LXD on Ubuntu 18.04? Are there any special steps I need to have my LXD containers from 16.04 work with the Snap LXD?
Also, I currently have my containers in /var/lib/lxd, with /var/lib/lxd/containers actually a symlink to a directory /home/srv/lxd/containers/ (which is on a BTRFS FS and has enough space for the containers). Does the Snap still support this or is the Snap restricted to only having containers in my user’s home (i.e /home/tim)?
