'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.


Upgrade paths:

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...

expand-template /etc/yum.conf

Then run yum command

yum --disable "*" --enable sme8os --enable sme8test upgrade

Once completed issue

signal-event post-upgrade;signal-event reboot
