Upgrade

Post by Ireq » 2020/07/09 18:01:48

Hellow i install centos 6 on a server the i purchase recently and i was tryng to make like a install from the begining of release but starting from centos 6 (more recent and availables); centos 6 and from there go to 8 but i find out after all the i was not able to update from 6 to 7.

Looking on the internet i found a blog of someone named martin is in Spanish and gives some instructions how to update. I want to know if I can do this without incurring any headline issues and if it currently technically functioned as a normal upgrade. blog (((((martinlugo.networksolutions-peru.com/migrar-desde-centos-6-5-a-7-0/))))))

Sorry, there is no supported upgrade from one CentOS major version to another. If you want CentOS 8 then install CentOS 8 to start with. You cannot upgrade from 6 to a newer version.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
