I rather suggest to question whether you should use an old version instead of one that is up to date. What is the reason for running 5.8?
Since Oracle Linux and upgrade is free I suggest to use the latest version, in particular if support and having the latest security patches are important. The only reasons I can generally see to stay with an older OS are if your hardware or software does not support the newer version, skill or budget constrains, or if the new version introduces an unacceptable issue.

That means no significant hardware updates, bug fixes, or new features will be added and only very significant security patches will be applied. If you haven't already installed your system, you should select the most recent release to ensure you have the latest software possible, which includes all hardware improvements, security and bug fixes. This means Oracle Linux 6.4.
