    I have have using cpanel on a couple shared servers and also have been using Plesk. Now that we have about 40 domains, we are thinking about setting up a dedicated server (novice linux users) and leaning toward Cpanel on Fedora 3 (or 2). But I have a few question that I am hoping experts on this forum can help with:

    1) Is there any way to migrated sites (Domain filess, emails, mysql, cron) from other server/control panels short of having to do it create and copy manually. The big thing is that I donnot want to lose user's email and password from old server.

    2) What is the latest version of Fedora, mysql and php supported by cpanel release?

    3) Is there a way access web mail by going to mail.domain.ext instead of www.domainname.ext:2095 (not user friendy). Also is there a way to only have hord instead of having user select their email reader everytime accessing the email.

    4) How would you rank Plesk, HSP and Cpanel from reliability, functionality and security point of view.

    5) What do you think about Fedora reliability vs. other linux releases?


    Thanks,

    I perfer RHE or centOS to Fedora

    there is a copy account form other CP's script built in Pl*sk is one of them it works pretty well but there may be a few bugs (never used the plesk)

    could not tell you dont use Fedora

    yes use donainame.com/webmail it will redirect to :2095 if you do not like that install cpanel proxy webmail.domain.com

    yes turn the other mail clients off in WHM tweek settings

    I perfer rhe & centOS

    Well your going to find a hard time finding fedora 3 dedicateds on any of the major hosts...I just bought some dedicateds and they all came with fedora core 1 you can upgrade them easy to fedora core 2 with yum though.

    I don't know. You can always copy the mail over manually and the password files.

    The page at www.cpanel.com will tell you this but I am pretty sure it is FC2 mysql 4.1 and php 4

    You could very easily add a server wide alias for this if you need to. But you can use www.sitename.com/webmail even on a default cpanel install.

    Best to worst
    CPANEL>>>PL*SK>>>HSP
    thats for all of them
    CPANEL is much faster and has more features I believe, I would sooner pay for CPanel than any of the other ones.

    FEDORA is good for servers.
    With regards to reliablility I think trustix is lighter and more reliable.
    However I have several FC2 and FC1 servers and they run fine with lots of clients on them.
    No matter what dist. you choose there will be idiosyncricies to work out.
    BUT you will find much more help with things on fedora because it is so widely used in the dedicated hosting environment...so if you are newish to linux, fedora is the right choice.

    Thanks

    Thanks to both folks who replied to my questions--great infromation and right on.

    Since there seem to be no tool to move domains, emails and etc from one server to another. Does anyone know how one moves email account (inlcuding email, settings, password) from redhat 9.0 to Fedora 2/3 with Cpanel? Detailed instruction (name of files, commands) would be great!

    Thanks,
