Hey everyone,


I'd like to upgrade our old FC4 server to FC7, however this machine is our production mail server/web server. I can have a few hours of down time but I'd rather not rebuild from scratch.


Can I upgrade from yum or the install DVD ?

the best advice is first backup.


once you've backed up everything important take the upgrade (via yum) this way.




it involves a lot more work but it'll work better than jumping directly from fcr4 to f7.


details of how to yum upgrade ( was recently upgraded from fcr4>fcr5>fcr6) can be found here






Thanks anyweb, I'll Image the machine before I do so.
