    Default How to Upgrade Centos from 5.5 to 5.6

    Before upgrading CentOS 5.5 to 5.6 it cannot be stressed enough how important it is to make a backup of your system before you do this. Actions listed in this post are written with the assumption that they will be executed by the root user running the bash or any other modern shell.

    Clean All Packages

    Code:
        # yum clean all
    The following command will get a list of packages that are going to be updated.

    Code:
        # yum list updates
    Lets begin upgrading CentOS 5.5 to 5.6

    Code:
        # yum update
    Finally reboot the server for Kernel changes to take effect

    Code:
        # reboot
    Verify that CentOS 5.6 is working:

    Code:
        # cat /etc/redhat-release
        CentOS release 5.6 (Final)
    Or you can use the lsb_release command:

    Code:
        # lsb_release -a
        LSB Version: :core-3.1-ia32:core-3.1-noarch:graphics-3.1-ia32:graphics-3.1-noarch
        Distributor ID: CentOS
        Description: CentOS release 5.6 (Final)
        Release: 5.6
        Codename: Final
