I'm interested in upgrading from 4.11 to 5.x. I currently track 4.x
stable using cvsup, but I've never done a major version upgrade.
First, should I bother? My hardware has dual pentium 1.13 processors
with 1G ram (I'm considering maxing it out at 4). I host email and web
sites for a few domains on this machine and I have four jails configured
on it which will have to be upgraded too. I have users counting
particularly on mail service not being down for too long.
Other than the obvious advice to start with a good backup, can anyone
1) Will I gain a major benefit from upgrading
2) Where should I look for instructions / advice on upgrading
3) Also any general advice from personal experience.
4) Just how risky is this?
