upgrade from 6 to 7

Post by kchaoued » 2019/02/27 09:39:27

hello,

I need to do a migration of centos 6 to 7, I saw on the forum that a direct migration is not possible and it is necessary to make a new installation of centos 7.

so my question is how to switch to centos 7 without losing the data and configuration of my server.

thx

First run a backup.
The simplest might be to install and configure 7 on a new server/PC and then transfer data and setup(s).
If that's not possible, you could install it in parallel on new disk(s), and then transfer data and setup(s).
