I saw the pelthora of threads where people had trouble moving to 4.4. So
I'm chicken now and I was trying to wait for the dust to settle, I suppose
it has and its been long enough I'm nervous about not upgrading. I need to
do a a production server that is located in a data center far away so even
more than normal I want a smooth upgrade.
Can someone tell the what the concensous was on the best way to do the
upgrade and avoid problems. From my notes I got:
yum upgrade python-sqlite
yum upgrade sqllite
yum upgrade yum
yum clean all
But at least one guy said his box was still hosed with duplicates and a
broken bind after that.
What's the method to upgrade 4.3-> 4.4 with the highest change of sucess?
Thanks very much for the help.
