    Greetings,

    I am wondering what the status on Debian Beta for the Cpanel, since I would like to plan to start setting up new servers using Debian and rebuild the current one later down the road for this.

    I know some people reported some problems but it seems that there is not much discussion or such on this. So...any chance we can get some idea of what is required to release Debian out of Beta to be fully used, since lot of people want Debian along with FreeBSD and Fedora/Redhat ES for usage.

    Hi,

    i'm currently trying to get the debian beta up and running. If someone from the development team is interested, please drop me a line (e.g. on the beta-testing protocol etc.).

    Most of the functions I managed to get to work, but not all (Exim is giving some problems, MySQL is not working correctly (and thus mailman etc...) and IMAP is not yet working).

    Regards,

    Rolf

    Just a quick update:

    -some links to sockets (MySQL) are not okay (quite easy)
    -EXIM is not fully functional
    -proFTPd can not be restarted in WHM
    -system is 'unstable' but we need to investigate why (maybe due to some update...
    -I can't get the system to work properly with our local DNS-setup (the nameservers are already there, cPanel/WHM will not be the one doing this for us).

    Thus, cPanel for debian is truely 'beta' still. If there is some beta-testing protocol, we'll opt to be beta-testers as we want to get it working soon as well.

    Regards,
    Rolf

    yea sure.
    It is very important to have stable cpanel for debian.
    Debian is rock solid and free, so why not used?

    I think Cpanel's Debian version has ceased development, because it has been in "BETA" a long long time now, and hasn't changed.

    Too bad... after Redhat ES, Debian seems to be the next most wanted distribution (not counting Fedora... ppl must be crazy to try and run stable servers with Fedora).

    bind

    same probs here.
    I've replaced my RH9 with debian 3.0 remotely and the cpanel install looks like its a just a slightly modified RH install :rolleyes:

    to fix bind upgrade to bind9 in shell > apt-get install bind9

    delete file /etc/init.d/bind
    create symbolic link /etc/init.d/bind to /etc/init.d/bind9
    start bind from shell, the whm restart bind doesn't work

    change proftpd to pureftpd in whm to get ftp working

    Debian has been in BETA for a very long time :(
    I was hoping it would be further developed but I suppose now that FreeBSD and Red Hat Enterprise are around no one is putting pressure on Cpanel development team for it.

    I would love to see Debian supported but I can understand that a new OS like Windows would get worked on more because it's a brand new market = eg easily make more money for the company ;)

    True, but in the recent poll, the most popular stable distributions were:

    Redhat Linux ES
    Debian
    FreeBSD

    I see little mention of Mandrake, SUSE, or others. Why are they still so heavily supported, why the most popular one (Debian) is not at all?

    Even "Trustix" is out of beta now!!! I don't think anyone specifically asked for Trustix, but popular demand is for Debian.

    And Debian release schedule is years apart and Debian always continues security updates for a long time after each release to ensure integrity and stability.

    Perhaps there is some hidden or secret reason that Cpanel doesn't like Debian? Anyone know?

    I'm using cpanel with debian too and only mailman is the problem at the moment....... I would like it to be out of beta because debian is a very stable os.
    The problems we get a lot are .rpm vs .deb not working together, maybe that's why debian cpanel is still in beta

    and me i am very interest to see a stable cpanel version for debian.
    Other control panels (like directadmin) have begin to test debian, and can have stable versions in the next 1-2 months.
    I hope cpanel do the same.

    somebody at our company fixed that problem, the stmp server wasn't working correct but you can fix it by changing permissions (dont know wich, sorry :( )

    We will switch to freebsd next week because we cant trust debian with cpanel, I prefer debian but we can't get it working for 100 % with debian :(

    Debian Linux was recently found by Netcraft to be the fastest growing Linux distribution worldwide... but Cpanel still doesn't really support it?

    Any update when it will be really supported (not alpha or beta)?
