My server is currently running RHEL 5. I would like to install RHEL 6 over it. Do I simply install it and will the installation erase everything I have on the server now?

Thank you.

Regards, Rayne

Installing a newer major version of EL over an older is not supported, even if possible. I highly recommend you backup your existing system and install fresh.
