    When I run the ConfigServer Services (csf 2.62) script on my server, I get the following message:

    First. does that mean I should upgrade to version 5 ? Or is there a higher version ?
    Second, how hard is it to upgrade and are there any risks ? Can someone post a tutorial or a link to a guide ?

    Thanks

    You should upgrade to the latest version of CSF immediately.

    Have you considered moving over to CentOS (still free)? You would save yourself a lot of headaches as the release cycle is a lot longer, fedora is incredibly short.

    Backup your data, conf files and any other files you need on a secondary HD or remote server. Follow the instructions (at your own risk) given here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/YumUpgradeFaq

    If your server is 64Bit, don't upgrade otherwise your server will be a mess.

    it's pretty scary.. Upgrading at my own risk.. There doesn't seem to be a safe way to upgrade.. I read that many people have problems afterwards..

    Is CentOS good ? Anyone has it installed ?

    CentOS is good. Its Red Hat Enterprise Linux stripped of its Red Hat logo/branded parts. The bits running on CentOS are the same bits enterprise customers use. So yes, its good and stable.

    Are there any guides or tutorials to upgrade from fedora Core 4 to Centos 5 ?
    I would appreciate if anyone has been through this upgrade before to share their experience..

    Thanks

    You can't upgrade from fedora to centos5 you need to do a clean install.

    Go on, have a guess
    And don't be tempted to go to FC5 as support for that is about to cease too by the Fedora project.

    FC6 is supported in cPanel 11 which will be in all branches within a month. I'd recommend doing an upgrade to that - check out Rack911.com, they are very good upgrading OSs if you are uncomfortable doing it by yourself. (They can also migrate you to CentOS should you decide to jump on that bandwagon.)

    It's really not that confusing.

    There is a new Fedora (check that spelling there!) Core release every 6-8 months, and each release gets about a year of support.

    Pretty simple actually; it's just that cPanel is always behind the curve with OS release support - and every software release for that matter.
