    I want to upgrade from Centos 4.4 to Centos 5.0. How do I update the os?

    Right now I have:

    WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.9.0-R10737
    CentOS 4.4 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

    Cpanel v10 will work on centos 5.0 ?

    -V10 won't work with centOS5 (V11 will work with centOS5, see other topics in this forum)
    -Upgrade centOS4 to 5 with a control panel on it will break the control panel so you have to do a clean install of centOS5 first.

    So there is no way to uprade a centos 4.4/cpanel 10 to centos 5.0/cpanel 11 ???
    Sound crazy for systems that have more than 1000 accounts, to format the server and do a fresh install.

    But if cpanel 11 works with centos 4.4 then I can upgrade cpanel 10 to 11 and then update the OS.

    I think you have a point about that but I can tell you also if you upgrade first cPanel and then centOS even then your cPanel will break :(

    I submited a ticket a few minutes ago and I got this response from a Cpanel Tech:

    CentOS 5 is not currently a supported operating system. cPanel offers support for CentOS 3.x and 4.x.

    You should be able to run cPanel v11 on Centos 4.4.

    You can also get a full list of our supported operating systems here:
    ====
    http://www.cpanel.net/products/cPanelandWHM/linux/sys_requirements.htm
    ====

    cPanel 11 will run any of systems listed on that site.

    Should you have further questions, please let me know, I am happy to help.

    Thank you.

    Centos 5 support for cpanel hasnt been officially announced yet. So you can run cpanel 11 on centos 4.x without problem.

    I think I am losing your point now. You didn't ask if it was supported you asked if it will work. cPanel/WHM V11 will work on centOS5 there are a few people on this forum that runs cPanel V11 with centOS5 (search this forum for the topics)

    That cPanel/WHM v11 will work with centOS4 is offcourse old news and you can see that on the website of cPanel. Personaly I advice you to run centOS4.4 server edition and wait a little longer with centOS5. New is not always the best.

    I have upgraded the centos 4 to 5 and it works. You must follow this steps"

    1. backup your files before doing this!!!!
    2. upgrade centos 4 to 5 with dvd (not from ssh)
    3. After upgrade run yum upgrade to get latest packages. reboot after this
    4. reinstall perl (with perinstaller on http://layer1.cpanel.net)
    5. run /scripts/upcp --force
    6. run /scripts/eximup --force
    7. reboot and check of services working

    This sounds very intresting. And when you did this everything was working? Did you do a centOS5 server install clearing all options?

    Yes, everything was working after this steps. When you start the installer from dvd have you 2 choices. Upgrade or new install. I have done the upgrade option
