Upgraded the server

Posted May 30, 2010 by John Woltman

Upgraded the web server to CentOS 5.5. To test it, I used my local virtual version and upgraded it successfully. Next, I made a backup of the live site in case things went south. Finally, I issued the nail-biting "yum update" command, and the even scarier "reboot" command. Within two minutes I was running the latest and greatest CentOS.
