Ok...what do you mean by "with configuration"?? And since you're using RedHat Enterprise, have you contacted RedHat support? They probably have a document and procedure set to do exactly what you're wanting.

Well I tried to find the appropriate document but no luck

With config means... If squid server, Apache and DHCP etc are fully configured in RHEL4 then after upgradation they should working fine.
I know it is not as easy as 1.2.3 but if I have proper document then I’ll do it.

Back up your configuration files, as well as do a full backup. Then either do a fresh install of RH5, or do an upgrade.

RedHat support can walk you through the whole thing. Have you contacted them, since you're paying for support????

Don't count on that without testing. You're going to get newer versions of both Apache web server and Squid, so it's conceivable that you'll need to make some configuration changes.

May I ask why you're upgrading? (Just curious.)

You're using RHEL, which is a licensed product. If you're a student, you should be using Centos, which is the 'free' version. We've given you tips. To be more clear:



Since you've configured the services you've mentioned, you know where the configuration files are. Copy them to a different media. Run the upgrade or do a fresh installation. Copy the configuration files back.

There's not alot more to it, no matter if you're doing an upgrade, or doing a fresh install. Step one of anything like this is MAKE A BACKUP.

Also, spell out your words, and speak/write clearly.

Regarding information about RHEL upgrade, you can take a look to:

http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red...grade-x86.html

Note that configuration files may not be valid for the new versions, and RedHat recommends to reinstall and restore config files.

RHEL4 is still supported and RedHat deliver updates to continue en the branch 4 and avoid upgrading to 5.


BTW, RHEL is not a licensed product but a GPL product with registraded trademark and logo. This means, you can use it and istall it as soon as you get a DVD with the software. However, you can not distribute it.

You need to open your own thread for your own question.....this thread is THREE YEARS old, and was closed.

You don't say what version of Apache, or version/distro of Linux, so it's hard to say. Your Apache configs are usually in /etc/apache (or apache2). Back that directory up. Also, back up your pages, since they will be in a different location.
