Did anybody use cPanel with RedHat Enterprise Linux 3?

Is it have a lot of bugs?

I need to make a decision in next few hours wich OS to use n our new server: RH9 or RHE....

From one hand, RHE is more stable and this is a future. But cPanel in beta state.
From other hand RH9 is well known product but it wil be EOL at April 30, 2004

cPanel.net Support Ticket Number: 31517

We will know in a day or two. I am awaiting the arrival of our test server with RHE and cPanel, we will also be testing Tomcat 4.0.3 and Tomcat 4.1.2 (from an install and basic functionality point)

Both Progeny and Fedora-Legacy will be releasing security patches for RH7 after Jan 1. In other words there is no EOL and there is no need to change OS's before you are ready.

I won't use fedora based O/S on any client server. Also found several High-End NOC's refusing it as well.

As for Progeny? Don't know enough about them to trust them, plus the fact they are not RH so no guarantee of continued quality or stability.

Anyway it everyones own choices, for us it will be RHE for all client servers.

I also said nothing about going back to 7. I simply stated that there is no need to worry about EOL because security updates will be issued by 2 organisations.

I have 7.3 currently and will update to RHEL when I'm ready, not on Jan 1. EOL does not exist.

Any time frame when cpanel will be out of the beta versions for RHE?

I hear the upgrade from RH9 to RHE would require a complete o/s reinstall which means all additional information will be lost... If cpanel will be fully compatible with RHE soon i will hold off on making any more customizations to my server,

You need to add your hostname in the localdomains file, at least that has managed to get exim working for local delivery for me so far, still can't get out anywhere else :(

I have contacted a few server providers, they are recommending to get Redhat 9 today, then switching later to RHE - some will allow you to switch without paying, just ask them.

RHE is only in beta stage for Cpanel at this point but I have hear it can be ready as early as first week of 2004.

If your using ur OWN files, then it will be okay to use RH9 now and upgrade to RHE later... however if you plan to be a webhost, the transition can be quit difficult for the fact that to upgrade from RH9 to RHE it will need a complete O/S reinstall which can be a burden, as u will need to find a way to properly backup ur clients files and resintall.

I hope to use RH9 now and update to RHEL later without doing a complete reinstall. Here's how:

I too am in position where I need to deploy another server and make a decision. Since I have the disk space and the server will be a couple thousand miles away when CPanel is stable on RHEL I am thinking a dual boot makes the most sense.

I must maintain a stable server so I am planning on loading a small partition with RH9 and another with RHEL; each with their own CPanel installed. I will use RH9 for now and then sometime next year copy a few configuration files for CPanel and the OS from the RH9 partition to the RHEL and I'm ready to go. At least in theory ;-)

I can always fall back to RH9 and use Fedora Legacy but think this might be the easiest way to get on RHEL at a later date. If it does work then I can switch to RHEL and apply a lot of updates all without paying the data center for what would be an ugly complete re-install.

What's the rush for RHE anyway?

You can still run a webhosting company with RH6.2! :)

I have not tried cpanel on RHES yet but the OS is rock solid.

For once everything works like its supposed to without having to tweak anything

Memory management is a lot better, OS is a lot faster than the RH x
