Backup! Backup! And then Backup!

Seriously you need to backup the system if you value your site.

If you take an image of the system then you can use that to copy relative information when you need too for the new install. Be aware that a lot of the configuration information may be changed over with little effort on your part too the new install.

I suggest that you do a search here on LQ. You might look at the 'Linux - Server' forum replies.

For MySQL, I'd use mysqldump cmd; this avoids issue when the exact version of MySQL may differ (including patches).
Then take a backup of any important cfg files. Depending on your current system, these will probably not work exactly as is on Centos, but they will show you want you need to enable.
Generally, when you install Centos, it'll ask you what you want installed during that process (see Custom install iirc).
Otherwise, after it's installed you have 2 choices;

1. if you installled the GUI, use the Add/Remove SW menu option
2. if no GUI, login to an xterm and use the 'yum' cmd.

You'll want the Deployment manual, which is a really good HOWTO/explanation manual.
