    Looking to upgrade our server and OS. Want to pick everyones brain.

    Current is ...
    dedicated machine @ serverpath.com
    paying $2899 a year
    1500 gig a month
    dual xeon 1.3 w/ 1 gig ram
    mirrored 36 gig HDs
    redhat 9.0 w/ Cpanel

    Server used for ...
    html & phpbb forums (5000+ users per day)
    multi-domains (nothing fancy)
    -nothing processing intensive

    Want to upgrade to newer supported OS and faster machine.

    Been happy with RH9 so what about Fedora Core v5 or Enterprise?
    Would Dual Core Intel Xeon or 2 Duo work just as fast or faster then current?
    Any providers I should know about to save some money?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Kirk

    On the hardware upgrade you should be able to evaluate from the current server spec with other cheap deals and performances

    But for the OS, please consider RHEL ( if you can get free license) or Centos. But not Fedora Core


    Reasons :

    Fedora is for the developer or highly technical enthusiast who wants the latest technology early and often and is using Linux in non-critical computing environments.

    We do not recommend using Fedora as a production server in managed environments where stability is a concern

    hope that helps
