The end of support for CentOS 5 on March 31st 2017
At the end of March 2017 operating system CentOS 5 will reach its end-of-life (EOL). Consequently, we will end support for CentOS 5 on March 31st 2017, an option will be also removed for this OS to be installed on new build servers or re-installed on existing servers.
Our technical support team will no longer offer support for CentOS 5, and no further patches or security fixes will be provided for this OS by its developers. Please note that if you don't upgrade the OS your server won't be protected from any new security vulnerabilities and could be left open to compromise.
