I would like to update a CentOS 5 virtual server to CentOS 5.6
I've never done this before and I would be greatful for any hints/tips/guides on the process.
I can't format my system as I have software/files that I need on there so I would like to upgrade rather than to install from scratch.
The CentOS documentation seems to come straight from RedHat and suggests that I connect to the RHN network, which is not possible as i'm using the free CentOS release.
Is the procedure the following, sorry but I really don't know. How safe is this procedure, if it works :
modify yum.conf to point to a 5.6 mirror and then perform the following commands :
yum clean all
shutdown -r now
