Question FC4 to FC6 are there any how to's?

I have about 30 servers that I want to YUM upgrade from FC4 to FC6 are there any how to's around? Do I have to go FC4 to FC5 to FC6??

Are there any stumbling blocks around PHP and my SQL?

I can't be the only person out here that is still running Fedora 4 and wants to upgrade to fedora 6. Please point me in the right direction.

On a couple Fedora desktops I just upgraded straight from FC4 to FC6. Throw CD in and go.

Note that php went from 5.0 to 5.1, and mysql from 4.1 to 5.0. You will have to find out whether this affects your applications.

Can't guarentee that it will work.
You first need to install fedora-release 6.x and releasenotes 6x.
Download both to the same location and install both at the same time rpm -Uvh *.rpm

You should probably backup your original fedora-release and release notes (don't know what the notes are called on fc4)

Disable any 3rd party repos. You may also need to disable extras for the upgrade.

yum upgrade.

You may be better off with Jman's recommendation (no guarentee there either though)
