There is no official Red Hat upgrade path from 5 to 6

The general conclusion is that you will have to install 6.4 and then migrate your applications / data accordingly.

As above. I tried migrating from one to the next on a non critical system. Was not pretty. You will save tons of time migrating.

As TenTenths implied, its officially unsupported (by RH) to migrate across major version nums eg https://access.redhat.com/site/docum...ted_Notes.html
