The end of supported life (which practically means all life) of CentOS 6 is at end of this month. Two weeks from now.

That begs a question: Why that distro, now?

CentOS 6 will not work with anything that new. And it only has 2 weeks of life left so it's not the solution to anything.

Try one of the newer distro versions and raise a new topic in the relevant forum if it fails and include all possible information that might help diagnose any problem you experience.

Install your favorite, supported distro, then install a VM to run your server process, or run it in a Docker container.
