SME Server 8
'Status:' Pre-Alpha SME Server Version 8 will be the next major version of SME Server, and will involve upgrading the base to CentOS5 (Scientific Linux 5 at the moment, as CentOS5 is not publicly available). We are just in the very early stages of testing, but so far things look very good - not nearly as many changes as were required from going from a base of RedHat 7.3 in SME Server 6.x to a base of CentOS4 in SME Server 7.x.
So far 7.1, 7.1.3 and WIP 7.2 are able to upgrade to SME 8 testing.
Want to join in the fun:
Grab yourself a test box and follow the instructions below:-
Setup with the following yum repositories,,,
/sbin/e-smith/db yum_repositories set sme8os repository \ Name 'SME Server 8 - smeos' \ BaseURL 'http://mirror.contribs.org/smeserver/releases/testing/8/smeos/i386/' \ EnableGroups yes \ GPGCheck no \ Visible yes \ status enabled
/sbin/e-smith/db yum_repositories set sme8test repository \ Name 'SME Server 8 - Testing' \ BaseURL 'http://mirror.contribs.org/smeserver/releases/testing/8/smetest/i386/' \ EnableGroups yes \ GPGCheck no \ Visible yes \ status enabled
Expand your yum.conf...
Then run yum command
yum --disable "*" --enable sme8os --enable sme8test upgrade
Once completed issue
signal-event post-upgrade;signal-event reboot
