    i was wondering whats best to run for cpanel in ways of staying up-to-date and having secure way to update servers incase of security holes comes out?


    i'm so fimilier with freebsd and using make world to update the whole system, but i was wondering does it support the related services such as linux/redhat does?


    because i've seen around from server softwares (other apps) they always support linux first then go to other OSes such as freebsd and others, does such situation is there for Cpanel also?


    Thanks!

    Dear big,

    Although both FreeBSD and Linux are supported by cpanel, RedHat linux is one of the most popular choice and it has the regular updates (almost daily) from Cpanel.

    but you can use ports (freeBSD) to update your system, it's easy. and it doesnt have 4 months EOL (like RH)
