I too am running FC6 and know that an upgrade to FC8 is inevitable. What
scares me is upgrading a single server in a small business that relies on
email (with spamassasin and plugins) and ftp services.
Has anyone had any difficultes that caused major downtime during an
upgrade to 8 from 5 or 6?
Are there and special precatutions one should take aside from having
redundant backups of all data, and tracking packages, etc?
Also, with 9 due out in April, would it be better in the long run to wait
the 4 months?
