    I'm getting ready to get a dedicated server. I need to know how close the Debian build of cPanel is to being ready for production. I have to have Debian on this server.... b/c my hate for RedHat runs so deep.

    How hard would it be to trick cPanel into installing the RPM on Debian, or Gentoo even? And would it work? Why would one not want to run this in production... it's the same code??

    cPanel runs extremely stable on Red Hat 7.3 & 9; stick with what is most widely supported or else you're going to start running into bugs, etc. that won't be corrected until a large user base complains about them. If you use Debian, FreeBSD, etc. you're just giving yourself one big headache.

    Do yourself & us a favor and just go with the mainstream.

    If everybody went with the mainstream we wouldn't be using linux. The only way things are developed are when things are expiremented and tested, otherwise we would still be sitting at desks punching calculators all day and trading the stock market via phone. :)

    You've taken what I said out of context.

    tricking cpanel would be difficult and you would have nothing but problems.

    I am one that would like to see debian used. I've always liked debian better than RH. ciphervendor is right thought, i would use RH as it's the most stable.

    If you don't like RH, I would recommend trying the FreeBSD version.

    If you like Debian, you'll really like FreeBSD.

    Give it a shot. I would say FreeBSD is the second most widely-used OS for cPanel (RH being the first.)

    RedHat is going to be used a LOT less once they start charging $400 for it next year.

    Many users who currently use RH will switch to Debian or FreeBSD (which is NOT Linux, just so you know).

    I know I will.

    I was referring to FreeBSD not being Linux.
