    Hello,
    How do I change the network name on centOS 7? The usual way I've been doing it is:

    but opening: nano -w /etc/sysconfig/network only shows: # Created by anaconda and that's it.

    Nevermind - I had a brain fart and forgot to check the Getting Started Guide...

    Here's another question though; I'd like to upgrade from CentOS 6.6 to CentOS 7 on an existing Centminmod install. If I follow: TipsAndTricks/CentOSUpgradeTool - CentOS Wiki

    Will their be any issues in doing this?

    On my latest OVH Dedicated server, I even use CentOS 6.7 for stability :).
    So stick to CentOS 6 or create a fresh CentOS 7 Node.

    Yeah, I'm creating a new VPS w/ CentOS 7 - The upgrade option is far to risky. Since I can only upgrade PHP on CentOS7 to RC6 - I've got allot of these to do this week lol
