    Hi,

    I'm geting a new server for Cpanel next week. I wonder what is the best Red Hat version to use?
    Red Hat 9 will have updates longer, but I see that most of the datacenters still install Red Hat 7.3 for use with Cpanel.
    So is it better to use ver. 9 or ver. 7.3?
    Is there anything to worry about on ver. 9?

    Thanks

    Well the 7.* versions have about another 6 months of life in them. If you want to go with a higher version, i'd go with 9.. tho I do hear there are some problems with that version of redhat. But if you do want to go with 7.. i'd pick 7.3

    But now I'm trying to see what's better, small (or maybe big) problems with Red Hat 9, or problems when there are no more security updates for ver. 7.3?

    I have found 8 to be quite stable running Cpanel. My server has been up nonstop since I installed Cpanel about 48 days ago.

    Prior to deployment, for 14 days I load tested the server, running approximately 700 processes and experienced no problems -- on a dual Xenon 2.4GHZ with 2G RAM.

    I choose 8 because it was the latest and had recently completed the Dell verification and validation process whereas 9 hadn't at that time.

    Hope that helps.

    We use 8, it seems to have more compatible kernels with hyper-threading and a couple other things we liked.

    We will most likely go to 9 in the next couple months but by then they will have 10 :mad:

    I did notice that several large companies stay with 7.3, I would say who but no plugs for them they have enough popularity. ;)

    Then I'll leave this decision to my datacenter :)
    Is it usually hard to upgrade to newer version of Red Hat? Or complete reinstall is better?
