I don't have a subscription setup yet, so I'm missing a lot of details on building a VPS. I need to have an Ubuntu 8.04 server that is 64bit. My applications are built around that version.

How is that accomplished?

While I see other 64bit verisons, I don't see 8.04 64bit as an option.

I've looked at upgrading from 32 to 64, but all the forums say I'll need an iso, or CD. Can I "mount" a CD on a VPS?

Or is there a way that escapes me right now?

I just looked on the available configuration, and I don't see the one you require.
Ubuntu 8.04 exists but it's 32 bit.
Newer Ubuntu versions are 64 bit (8.10, 9.04, 9.10)

Since this is VPS, you cannot mount CDs nor reinstall the OS by yourself.
You need the staff to add a template for you, and you are forced to follow the provided templates until you choose to reinstall the OS with a new template from the list.

I suggest you to try the Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit. Your applications will mostly work with that version, but if you have the source code you can always recompile them.

VPSVille gives you a 30days trial period for your server, so if you are not satisfied they'll refund you, see terms and conditions.
