It's a new server installation, all of which is replacing the old
server: Yes.

Assuming 2.2.9 is config-file-compatible with 2.1.12, I'd be inclined
to stick with that.  I spent a *lot* of time getting done what I've
already gotten done.  I really, really don't want to go through that
all over again.

It will!  Thanks!

I believe that's the way I'll go.  14.04 LTS is supposed to be
supported until Apr. 2019, so I'm inclined to stick with packages to
the extent possible.

Just getting off an old, long-EOL'd Sun Sparc Solaris system upon which
I was *obliged* to build & install from tarballs all the time.  Looking
to leave that behind to the extent possible.

Do I understand correctly that if I install from that PPA, installing
"over the top of" the existing install, and choosing to retain my
existing radiusd.conf, that all future updates will come from that PPA,
rather than the official Ubuntu 14.04 repos?
