Question about upgrading Fedora (from fc6 to FC10)



Hello,

I am quite new to Fedora. One of our server is installed with fc6 and I see there are no updates anymore, which leads me to many questions :

1. Is there a place to find the packages to be able to have our server installed with the latest FC6 updates ?

2. Can I upgrade "live" or should I use the CDROM ? What is the best ?

I read that "The recommended installation method is with a boot media with the Anaconda installer as detailed in the Installation Guide. PreUpgrade is a slightly different upgrade method where the all packages are downloaded before the system is rebooted into the Anaconda installer. "

If that's true, can I thrust it at100% to make the server work, or are there some changes in config that could not be solved ?

What do you suggest ? Simply backup /etc ?

3. Whatever solution I choose, is it better to upgrade fc6 -> FC10 or 6 -> 7 -> 8 -> 9 -> 10 ?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help,

Denis

P.S. I already read this website :
