    Hello :)

    Directly upgrading from CL5 to CL6 is a major upgrade, the same way it is if you had to upgrade from CentOS 5 to CentOS 6. Ideally, you should configure a new server with CloudLinux 6, and then migrate your accounts over to it using the cPanel transfer tools.

    Thank you.

    You wouldn't really want to anyway. If that upgrade fails, you'd lose the server. Far better to get a new server and migrate.

    Right, direct upgrades like that are rarely recommended. Instead, you should setup the new OS on a new server and migrate the accounts.

    Thank you.
