    Hello,

    I wonder if it is a standard answer to what operating system to
    use with cpanel and WHM ?

    And is it really that easy to use the system without the knowledge of
    linux ?

    I know a few basic commands, but I'm not a pro

    this has been discussed on a very large amount of occasions, a search will bring up the threads.

    Most seem to agree that CentOS4 is the best route to go down if you want to keep it free, or RHEL4 if you like to have a supported operating system.

    I would agree too

    Free => Centos 4.x
    Paid => RHEL

    if your server does not need many fancy stuff which linux offer, i would go with FreeBSD too

    CentOS 32bit is the easiest, and seems to get along great with cPanel. If is is a 64 bit system, the system may give better benchmark readings with CentOS_64, but doesn't get along well with cPanel. I've tried pretty much all of the cpanel supported OS's on test machines and CentOS 32 bit always wins out by having the least problems. Although the 64 bit version gives higher benchmark results.

    Also it seems that any modification to the kernel, even things that theoretically should speed the system up like changing the cpu away from generic, to what is actually in the system delivers a lower benchmark score.

    Also, the listed OS's are exactly what will work. If cpanel lists that tthey support Suse 10, don't assume 10.1 will also work. Your assumative posture will cost you a wasted couple hours of you life. I heard :)
