    Dear users,

    What's the best OS (64-bit) to run cpanel with on a DUAL Opteron 244?
    I was thinking about SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 for AMD Opteron (64-bit)
    however I'm not sure cpanel runs well on it...

    regards,

    I've seen it running exceptionally well on a clients servers on RHE3 on 64-bit. So, RHE3.4 or CentOS3.4 should be fine. No experience of SUSE.

    In my opinion i feel it runs better on freebsd 64bit. I have seen some issues recently with it running on redhat enterprise / centos. Mainly related to certain php functions not compiling correctly with out some manual tweaks.

    What php functions were those? I've not had any reports of problems.

    Cpanel told me that Suse is not supported in 64-bit so I think we will use CentOS or RHE...

    we were goign to use Trustix on our 64 but got buggered around so much by them that we ended up beihng forced at the time to go with FC2 and run the server in 32 bit mode... such a shame so we havent bothered with any more 64's for now.

    When and if RHE4 or CentOS4 are supported by CPanel we may revisit them but currently its such a waste...
