    Hi everyone. I have a server running cPanel 8 and RedHat 9.

    Just wondering if anyone has any opinions on stability of cPanel version 9 for Redhat vs version 8. I want to make sure it's real stable before upgrading.

    Thanks for your input.

    That is clearly REDHAT LINUX, not cpanel. And for what its worth, i'd definately go with Redhat linux 9. Couple of reasons..

    1. Redhat updates will no longer exist ( they will be available for a limited time from fedora legacy ) after the new year.
    2. Redhat linux 9, IMHO has been proven far more stable than 8. Its more of an *.1 perhaps than a *.0.

    If you are wanting to stick with redhat, i'd encourage you to look into enterprise. Otherwise, i'd go with one of the other linux distro's, or perhaps even FreeBSD, if you have any knowledge of the system.

    Oh, whoops. I thought that meant cPanel version 9. I am running RedHat 9 on my dedicated server, but now after this whole RedHat thing, I wish that I went with FreeBSD as I wanted to originally :(.

    FWIW I haven't had a moments problem with RH8. Here are a couple of my RH8 boxes:

    7:57pm up 169 days, 20:22, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00

    7:58pm up 103 days, 22:40, 3 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00

    LOL -

    So you mean you have not done kernel updates? You have cPanel? You have php and perl?

    Good luck and have fun.

    Please hire yourself a qualified System Administrator.

    I am glad to see that you decided to remove the name calling from your post.

    Don't be on the defensive! My post was just to open you reyes... to help you out, thats all.

    When I originally read this I was pretty pissed but then I got to thinking about what this pos(t)er or the other knows about my servers and I quickly came up with the answer of "they know absolutely nothing".

    My suggestion might be to stop attacking others, making stupid comments when you have no clue wtf it is you are talking about.

    No further replies will be read.

    Perhaps his kernel is compiled from source? If that is the case, depending on how he compiled, he may not be vulnerable to the recent vulnerablities.
