    Note that if you are attempting to install the STABLE version of cPanel/WHM on CentOS 5 that CentOS 5 is not supported with cPanel 10 (the version currently in the STABLE build). By default, the installer will install cPanel 11 which is supported on CentOS 5.

    I have the following

    WHM 11.2.0 cPanel 11.8.0-C16150
    CENTOS Enterprise 4.5 x86_64 - WHM X v3.1.0

    Is there a suggested upgrade procedure or will standard upgrade procedures work?

    Although I had CentOS 4.5 prior to this and was advised by my host to go for a brand new VPS, then to manually transfer everything over to avoid problems. Apparently if you upgrade 4.5 to 5.0 there are problems you simply don't want.

    Go on, have a guess
    That's the case with any major OS version upgrade, i.e. you should always backup, install new OS, restore. It's often possible to upgrade, but you can extremely easily end up with an unbootable server.
