    Hello,
    I've just had an email from my VPS provider regarding the release of CentOS 6.. currently I'm running 5, and would like to know how to correctly go about upgrading to 6 so that cPanel/WHM will work after loading the new OS.
    As I don't believe backing up and restoring from the VPS control panel will make cPanel/WHM work straight away.

    Thanks.

    Are you going to get a new VPS instance for CentOS 6, since you cannot update from CentOS 5 to CentOS 6 on the same node (only kernel updates can occur rather than a full OS update between major versions)?

    I'm unsure, as I've not done this before.
    In the VPS control panel it has an option to wipe the entire OS & files and reinstall the OS with whatever version you like. I'm not even sure I'll benefit from going from 5 to 6.. maybe I'll just stick to 5 :S

    If you aren't yet certain the benefit for you, since CentOS 6 actually has appeared to consume more memory than CentOS 5 from early reports after it was officially released, I would suggest holding off for a period of time to wait to see what results it has for capabilities. Early adoption is not always ideal for a production server with important sites to the user.
