Upgrade from Earlier ClearOS Community 6.x Releases

There is no supported method for upgrading directly from ClearOS 6 to ClearOS 7. But you may upgrade indirectly.

Make a copy of your configuration data. Backup your user data as well or retire your ClearOS 6 hard disk drives as roll back devices. ClearOS 7 now supports the import of your configuration data but not your user data.

Upgrade from Earlier ClearOS Community 7.x Releases

Upgrades from 7.1.0 on properly running systems will happen automatically. To manually upgrade from ClearOS 7.1.0 or to validate that you are at the latest version run:

yum update
