    I'm running Fedora Core 2 (FC2) on my server and recently completed the upgrade from PSA 7.5.2 to 7.5.4 . I am so happy and relieved that the update worked flawlessly!

    In looking at the release notes for 7.5.4 I see that Fedora Core 3 (FC3) is now supported for the release of PSA that I'm running. My question is - what are issues involved in upgrading to the later Fedora release? Is it as simple as running a YUM update as detailed on this website?

    http://naeblis.cx/rtomayko/2004/12/06/fc2-to-fc3-upgrade-with-yum

    or is it more complicated, say, requiring that I backup and remove my sites, upgrade and then reinstall? Or something inbetween? I'd like to play it safe, of course, but balance that with minimum downtime. (This is a production machine with customers that don't like being offline naturally.)

    You can upgrade with yum, although there are some package dependencies that can be easily solved. I do not particulary recommend this for a production server.

    oh it sounds so tempting, I'd love to upgrade to FC3, but I'm too scared.

    unless there is a foolproof way I wont do it. since there is none - I'll see how others jump in and get to reinstall everything :p

    you know, since I obviously screwed up my server, I think I'm gonna try the FC2 to FC3 upgrade.

    since the link is down and I obviously want to read up a lot more, do you have more sources you'd be willing to share?

    Try a search on google, there are a lot of guys that wrote a FC2 to FC3 update guide using yum.

    FC2 with Godaddy

    I'm running FC2 through GoDaddy.
    All nice and upgraded to 7.5.4.

    Installed Yum all well and good, however when I go to update I get dependancy issues.
    Looking around I find the Atomic Turtle and the Fedora Legacy.
    (Legacy is what I used).
    Any recommondations on how to upgrade is AtomicTurtle my only route?
