    I looked briefly and didn't find any discussion as to if anyone had upgraded their CentOS on which cPanel is running from 5.x to 6.x, and if so how it impacted things, or what steps were necessary. Has anyone done this, or is there an official guide from cPanel on this?

    Hopefully I posted this in the right location, if not, my apologies. I've been a long time forum reader but this is my first time posting.

    Hello :)

    Ideally, you should consider configuring a new server with CentOS 6.x and then migrating your accounts over to it using the cPanel transfer tools. Directly upgrading from CentOS 5 to CentOS 6 is a major upgrade. While it's likely possible to complete with cPanel installed, it's not recommended due to the potential configuration errors that could arise.

    Thank you.
