    Hi,

    I would ask what do you think is the best Distribution for CPanel? I like Debian very much, but CPanel is only Beta for Debian. Any experiences with Debian and CPanel?

    What do you think is the best way for CPanel?

    Many Thanks for your help,

    Kind Regards,

    Dennis

    There's more installs of cPanel on both RHEL 3/4 family ( Centos i.e ) / Fedora and FreeBSD than any others - so they would be what I would do . Using any older RH is a bad idea

    I'd agree with that, with the exception of Fedora which I would not recommend.

    Fedora is a developers OS running bleeding edge versions of apps which are more likely to contain bugs and security issues. Each major build has a lifetime of at most 6 months, so you'll be upgradng your OS that often, or maybe rebuilding your server to keep current as once the OS goes EOL, support tends to disappear for it (fedora legacy updates are few and far between). There's a nice comparison over on Fedoras own site:
    http://fedora.redhat.com/about/rhel.html

    If you like to dabble with developer builds and know your way around Linux very well, then Fedora is fine, but for production environments, I've seen more problems with people stuck on EOL versions of Fedora than most other OS's.

    I use RHE if the NOC has it cheap, otherwise CentOS. I've also dabbled with FreeBSD which is nice if you're more familiar with BSD/UNIX than Linux.
