Upgrade Debian 6 Squeeze To Wheezy 7

I had a debian box which I needed to upgrade speciffically to wheezy.

Open the sources file and change the word squeeze to wheezy
nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Change the words ‘squeeze’ to ‘wheezy’

deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ wheezy main
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ wheezy main
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main

# wheezy-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main

Save and exit
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
Job done 🙂
