Hi Pieter and Markus!

Thanks for helping and highlighting!

Yes I used the wrong link.

Should be this to update Authoritative PDNS:

yum install epel-release yum-plugin-priorities &&
curl -o /etc/yum.repos.d/powerdns-auth-master.repo
https://repo.powerdns.com/repo-files/centos-auth-master.repo &&
yum install pdns

I will take your advise to run on clone first, to see if all works well,
before going into production.

Hopefully not much modification we need to make! ☹

Warmest Regards,
Jackson Yap

Like that, but installing the auth and not the recursor :).

Indeed, so you'll have some downtime while upgrading and updating the schema
and checking the zones. Hence the suggestion of cloning the database and
trying the upgrade first.

So "yes"
