server after talking to the support staff. I still need that stupid Ensim
control panel to manage domains on the apache server as I am not an expert at
doing it myself yet. The Ensim control panel installed is only compactible
with the version of Red Hat running on my server. If the vendors upgrades the
panel to work on a later Red hat, then I can upgrade the OS. If I become an
expert at managing Apache before they upgrade their shit then I will
definetely move to the latest Red Hat version. Right now I have to stay with

After you're convinced the core "keep the computer running" stuff is
upgraded, let apt do the rest with dist-upgrade). There is info about
apt-rpm on freshrpms. I posted the url in a previous mail.

red Hat 7.1. Or any version will work ??
