We’d like to remind everyone that CentOS 5 reaches its end of life on March 31, 2017, just six months from now. After this date, no further security updates will be provided by RedHat or the CentOS team for this operating system. If you are running your own server, we recommend that you start planning a migration of your server to a supported OS prior to this date to avoid any issues from outdated security packages. We will be happy to help set up a new server at no charge for 14 days to allow you time to upgrade without added costs. We’ll also be happy to help you transfer your data over. Just contact our support staff and we’ll work out a migration schedule with you. We will also be scheduling upgrades for our managed customers to CentOS 6 or 7 depending on your current setup prior to the March 31st deadline.
If you have any questions about this upcoming deadline, feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to discuss it further with you.
