Hi, I have a dedicated server and need to upgrade from Centos 4 to centos 5 in order to get automatic updates for new software. I was told that I need to get a new server in order get the operating system upgrade. I currently have an Intel Xeon 2.66ghz.
Is a new server really necessary? The current one is performing well for me. Why would my hosting company have this policy and is it a widespread policy among dedicated web hosting companies?
thanks for your help!
