    Hello all.
    I have a plan to order new server using FreeBSD 6.2 Installed. Since i will use cPanel on that server, I need the following information :
    1. Should I use release version of FreeBSD or the stable one ?
    2. For a best performance should i use 32 bit of FreeBSD or 64 bit ?

    Any kind of your reply are very appreciated.

    Regards

    1- The supported distributions page indicates you should use the release version: http://www.cpanel.net/products/cPanelandWHM/linux/sys_requirements.htm

    2- Keep in mind that many of the applications cPanel/WHM uses aren't available in specific 64-bit versions at this time. As a result, don't expect a substantial improvement in performance when these 32-bit apps are running on a 64-bit processor. Not saying there's no improvement with using 64-bit, just noting that not everyone may notice a performance improvement using 64-bit.

    Avoid using the stable as it appears the file structure it is yanked at some point after release comes out.

    As to the 64 bit, seems ALOT of people still have issues with it so if you are not really comfortable with Freebsd I would stay with the 32-bit.
