This is the howto for people who wants to upgrade there CentOS 4 to 5.

The only recommend upgrade option is from cd/dvd and locally in the datacenter. IT IS NOT RECOMMEND TO UPGRADE REMOTE WITH SSH (RESULTS IN PACKAGES CONFLICTS).

ONLY FOR V11 USERS. CentOS 5 is not supported by V10

For the upgrade must do the follow steps:
1. Boot from cd/dvd
2. choice the upgrade option and follow the steps.
3. The first boot after upgrade: run yum upgrade
4. reboot
5. reinstall perl 5.8.8 (see package http://layer1.cpanel.net/perl588installer.tar.gz)
6. run /scripts/upcp --force
7. reboot (resolves services problems)
8. reinstall apache (/scripts/easyapache)
9. reinstall exim (/scripts/eximup --force)
10. check all services if they running good.
