I have a CentOS 5.5 instance with both tomcat 5 and tomcat 6 installed. I want to upgrade to tomcat 7 and I'm wondering if I should remove the 2 previous tomcat instances before installing the new version. The thing is, I just did a test and when I uninstalled tomcat 5, the package manager also removed my openoffice installation. The tomcat 5 instance came with the base centOS install and I later installed tomcat 6 (without realizing that 5 was already on there).
So I'm just looking for suggestions as to the best way to proceed.
