what is the standard procedure for upgrading Fedora (18 to 19) that runs as an OpenVZ container on my VPS via SSH? Can I simply use fedup or does the admin have to perform the upgrade from outside of the container via some OpenVZ utils?

Ask the provider about this first. – goldilocks Jan 20 '14 at 11:39
The provider offers very little support and I feel this is a question the general public may be able to answer rather than bugging their small team. – mart1n Jan 20 '14 at 11:59
I meant just ask them if they think using fedup will be a problem. Keep in mind you can be left with an un-usuable, offline system... – goldilocks Jan 20 '14 at 12:18
