    I have WHM/Cpanel installed on a couple of VPS, and have always kept it up to date, along with all the scripts, but it still runs on Centos 5.3 :rolleyes:

    As updates are for both improvements and security, I was wondering if I should update Centos to 5.9 or jump straight to 6.4? ???

    I have no idea what effect that would have on the way the server runs, so any help appreciated. Should I just leave everything as is, because it is working fine, or upgrade to Centos 5.9 or 6.4? I don't want to screw anything up. :confused:

    Thanks :)

    upgrading to Centos 5.9 you should have no issues
    upgrading to centos 6.4 you should do a clean install and migrate/resotore from backup
