Default Upgrading or Changing Distros

I’m currently running ISPConfig on Fedora Core 4, and since the Fedora Legacy Project is no more, I’ve got a server in need of updates. Also, since the Fedora Legacy project is no more, running Fedora has lost much of its appeal. We’ve been moving a few of our servers over to CentOS due to long term support, and I’m wondering if I could have a successful upgrade to CentOS 5, or if I should just stick to Fedora for upgrading the OS. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Most Probably,
AlericB.

I don't think that upgrading a Fedora system to CentOS will work. You can try, but you should make a full backup of the system before.

Thanks, I'll probably stick to Fedora until I have another server to migrate the sites on to. How well does ISPConfig survive upgrades like that? I'll probably go from FC4 to FC6.

*Should* work without problems, but I'd make a backup because it's a rather big jump.
