What's the output from uname -a ?
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

So you are at least 2 point releases behind. Update to 7.7 and kernel 3.10.0-1062.1.1.el7 and retry.

Keeping software up to date should be the first and default option without a question.

"I don't want bugs and security holes fixed" is an unexplainable attitude.
