CentOS 5 Reaches End of Life

CentOS 5 will no longer receive bug fixes or security updates from CentOS, and we'll be removing it from our own repositories shortly.

We'd highly encourage anyone running a server with CentOS 5 to migrate to a newer distribution. CentOS 7 would be a good fit, though any Ubuntu LTS or Debian version should work as well.

Instructions for migrating to a new server are available here:
