I have been looking for an updated miner for my Centos 5 Server, however, I only found a very old miner. Is there miner or any techniques to run a miner on Centos 5?

Try xmr-stak.

This should work for any linux distro.

wget https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak/archive/v2.1.0.tar.gz
tar xzf v2.1.0.tar.gz
cd xmr-stak-2.1.0
cd bin
chmod +x xmr-stak

The above compiles without Nvidia and AMD support. Otherwise remove-DCUDA_ENABLE=OFF -DOpenCL_ENABLE=OFF

If cmake command fails, install these first.

sudo yum install centos-release-scl epel-release
sudo yum install cmake3 devtoolset-4-gcc* hwloc-devel libmicrohttpd-devel openssl-devel make
sudo scl enable devtoolset-4 bash

Hyc's cpuminer-multi will work on CentOS. See https://github.com/hyc/cpuminer-multi

Be sure to install the following CentOS packages: curl-devel libcurl glib-devel libtool
