How did you try to upgrade? The real issue is that F7 is out of support, so you really need to look at upgrading to a later Fedora release or to an enterprise version like RedHat or CentOS

Thanks for your reply.

Actually, I have a Virtual dedicated server and i can't change it's OS.It's current os is Red Hat Fedora Core 7.

There is no such rpm for this version of os.I just try to install openssh manually,but it is producing errors.
I have downloaded Openssh5.2 from "http://www.openssh.com/openbsd.html" and follow the steps as specified on the url.But nothing happened.

After issuing the command "make obj"
i have encountered with the following errors
"Makefile:3: *** missing separator. Stop."

How do i can install openssh on the server ? is there any specific guide to install it?

Thanks in advance

You probably shouldn't follow how to install on BSD instructions then.

Read the installation instruction in the INSTALL file. They pretty clearly state (for the linux version to):

Quote:
2. Building / Installation
--------------------------

To install OpenSSH with default options:

./configure
make
make install

This will install the OpenSSH binaries in /usr/local/bin, configuration files
in /usr/local/etc, the server in /usr/local/sbin, etc. To specify a different
installation prefix, use the --prefix option to configure:

./configure --prefix=/opt
make
make install

Will install OpenSSH in /opt/{bin,etc,lib,sbin}. You can also override
specific paths, for example:

./configure --prefix=/opt --sysconfdir=/etc/ssh
make
make install
etc.

Thanks for your Reply.

Here are my details.

• My VDS has red hat fedora core 7.0 as an operating system.
• OpenSSH_4.5p1 is already installed on the server.


To upgrade openssh on the server I have downloaded OpenSSH 5.2 on the server using the following command.
Wget ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/Op...ssh-5.2.tar.gz..
After that I have untar the folder inside temp folder.
It creates a folder ssh under the temp folder. Then try to install openssh using
./configure
make
make install
But unfortunately I have encountered with the error bash: no such file or directory and I have also found that there is no such configure file in ssh folder.

Please help to resolve this issue.
Thanks in advance

Did you cd into the folder created by tar?

You need to post detailed error messages.

Did you look for upgrade instructions in the tarball?
