    Hi All,

    Cpanel for Redhat 9 was release today and i'm thinking to upgrade from current Redhat version 7.3 to 9.0, is it any effected to current users account etc ? I'm understand to move current account have to copy some of important folders like /var/cpanel /home etc. Is it possible ?


    Please help and thank you so much

    unless you know linux like the back of your butt, i would never upgrade a live box, if you do, be sure to have a complete backup of all your sites on the server on a sep. disk and get ready to rebuild the OS from scratch if something goes arwy

    how well does anyone actually know the back of their butt? I mean, unless you live in a house of mirrors in a nudist camp, it's gonna be hard to really know it.

    It's more like an aquantance who you meet once or twice a day, talk sh**, shake hands, and move on.

    I posted a HOWTO for the procedure I used to do this last night. As with any work like this, I wouldn't attempt it on an important server...while I didn't lose any data and everything seems to be working, I did encounter a problem with my server going offline. (I should mention, however, that I have no evidence as to why the server went offline...it may have been an unrelated network issue that popped up at a bad time.)

    As of now, my server has been up for 10 hours and accessible, with Cpanel working.
