Hey all,
I'm a student working on a website for my robotics team. I've recently decided to experiment with a node.js/CouchDB setup instead of our current LAMP configuration. While trying to install these systems, I was appalled to discover that our current version of Fedora (version 8) is almost two years past EOL.
If I were to upgrade our server, what version of Fedora should I install, and how should I do this?

My suggestion to you go with fresh install of FC14 :) – Rajat Jan 4 '11 at 7:47

This is probably a bad idea, but all I can think of. Try using the preupgrade tool to work your way all the way up to the latest version (Fedora 14 Laughlin). Follow this guideline. It should work and hopefully not break anything.
