Centos 6 Updates

Centos 6 Updates

Hello,

 

I recently took over maintenance of a Magento based website.  All Magento patches have been applied but the CentOS 6 system updates have never been applied.  Has anyone encountered issues with applying CentOS updates?  I run other CentOS systems and have never encountered such an issue where an update has broken the application.  I just want to hear if there is a specific method that Magento requires, since I am new to this CMS.

 

Current system level:

 

[jeff@www ~]$ uname -a
Linux xxx 2.6.32-431.5.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Feb 12 00:41:43 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


[jeff@www ~]$ cat /etc/centos-release
CentOS release 6.5 (Final)

 

PHP 5.3.3 (cli) (built: Dec 11 2013 03:29:57)

 

Server version: Apache/2.2.15 (Unix)
Server built:   Apr  3 2014 23:56:16

... This would be an upgrade from 6.5 -> 6.7.

 

 

 

Thank you,

Jeff Carpio

Re: Centos 6 Updates

Hi

 

Centos 6.7 will bring PHP 5.4.16 - if you're running Magento 1.7 or below you may need to apply the patch listed in this blog post to make sure it's compatible.

 

Other than that, I can't think of anything that core Magento would have a problem with - it would just be if any of the installed extensions have additional requirements,

 

I hope that helps,

 

Regards,

Re: Centos 6 Updates

Argh!

 

No it won't. It'll stay as 5.3.3 - I misread and looked up CentOS 7's PHP version.

 

Should be fine, in my experience, unless your extensions are highly specialised,

Re: Centos 6 Updates

Thanks you!  Your reply is reassuring.

 

I will research if the php extensions have been changed from the default.
