I have a unmanaged Dedicated CentOS Server running and I've been trying to get a new IP Address for it.
My hosting provider allowed me to buy a new IP Address but it's up to me to actually change it on the server.
1) Could I actually change the IP Address of the server permanently?
2) Would all I need to do is change the eth0 setting in /etc/sysconfig/network-script and /etc/hosts? Does anyone know a good resource on doing this, many online resources seem to give conflicting steps
3) Is there a chance that I might lock myself out of the server after I do a "server network retart"? If so, would rebooting solve the trick, then logging in from the new IP Address?
