Cool Hopefull an Easy Question


I want to upgrade my RH 7.1 box to RH 8. Anything particular I need to know?
It's running a webserver. An old package called Mcidas.. That's about it.
Shouldn't be an issue correct?

Just curious and I know a dumb question

Remember and do the obvious things and back all live data up first, etc, etc.

If it's a production web server, it might be worth trying a test install of your web software on another box first, just in case. Is it worth migrating to Apache at the same time?

There shouldn't be any major issues, but...!
