SUMMARY: upgrading 2.5.1 to 2.7

From: Keith A. Clay (

The consensus is that the upgrade could be done. The problem is that
this is our main webserver and we are already tight on disk space.
Many who replied said that 7 would require more disk space. Secondly,
we can't afford for this server to be down any longer than it has to.
If we run into problems with the apps that run there, we would have to
restore everything from tape.

So, for right now, we will just install patches and avoid the upgrade.
Thanks to all who replied:
