Downgrade centos from 5.11 to 5.7

Post by nicholasashley » 2017/03/03 10:26:01

Hello and thanks for your help in advance

I have a website that I need to clone the server environment exactly for some upgrade testing, the issue I am having is that the earliest version of centos that digital ocean has is 5.11 and I need 5.7. I have read up on how to downgrade but I do not know the kernel version that shipped with version 5.7 to follow the procedure and so far my google searches have not found it (probably because its a very old version now). If anyone knows offhand it would be really helpful if they could share the information.

Old versions of the install isos are on but really you need to be getting OFF CentOS 5 altogether as it only has 4 weeks of life left.

Moving to the CentOS 5 forums, this is not 7 but probably should be!
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!
Info for USB installs on
CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
