If the server is unused then reformat it and install something supported on it. CentOS 5 is dead. It fell out of support in March 2017 and has received no maintenance since. This means that among other things, it's vulnerable to meltdown/spectre and everything else that's been exposed in the last 9 months.

Hi trevor

well thats the problem, i do actually want this server to be upgraded but the server admin doesn't wanna do that

The server is not a public one, at this moment the admin allow me to used this as my learning box..but yeah, it really suck even when using yum ,the repo are mostly were gone

Well, since the "Meltdown" vulnerability will never get fixed on CentOS 5, it's considerably more public than it used to be!
