    I'm trying to update Apache via WHM.

    I've updated cPanel, system software and the server software but continue to get this error.

    Code:

    I've also tried doing a 'yum update'. Is it my mirrors?

    Code:
    root@server1 [~]# yum update
    Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
    Server: Red Hat Linux 4 - i386 - Base
    retrygrab() failed for:

      Executing failover method
    failover: out of servers to try
    Error getting file http://mirror.dulug.duke.edu/pub/yum-repository/redhat/4/i386/headers/header.info
    [Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Many thanks

    You may wish to consider that Fedora Core 4 is EOL'd by the manufacturer. As a result, retrieving updates for this distribution will be increasingly difficult.

    Fedora Core 8 and 9 are the only versions not EOL'd at this time. We are currently working on Fedora Core 9 support.

    Many thanks

    I recommend consulting the manufacturer of Fedora Core for assistance regarding that.

    You may wish to note we do not support Fedora Core 8 at this time and our efforts are focused on supporting Fedora Core 9, not FC 8.

    I just wanted to add, if you want to avoid having to update your distribution frequently, you may wish to switch to a distribution such as CentOS or RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Versions of these distributions tend to be supported for a long period of time as they are intended for use in a server environment. Fedora Core is typically used as a development platform, hence its lifecycle is far shorter.

    You can make a full cPanel/WHM backup of your server on Fedora Core and restore it on a CentOS or RHEL system with cPanel/WHM at this time.

    For current information regarding the distributions we support, please visit: http://www.cpanel.net/products/cpwhm/cpanel11/sys_requirements.htm
