Hello,

cPanel 56 is the last version of cPanel to support CentOS 5, and also the last version to support 32bit architecture. It's likely your system runs on 32bit architecture if you receive this message on CentOS 6.x. You can verify your OS version and system architecture with the following command:

Code:
cat /etc/redhat-release ; arch
The following blog post provides more information on the steps you can take to transition to a new OS:

We're happy to help answer any questions you may have.

Thank you.

Ah yes, that's a good point. It's likely that the system is CentOS 6 32-bit.
