The process to "upgrade" is that you install a parallel copy of CentOS 7 on a different machine and migrate your services to it.

There is no upgrade process from one major version to the next (e.g 6 to 7).
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
