    Hi guys, I'v been looking all around, trying to find out some information on Cpanel. We would like to know what version of the following Cpanel runs. We are currently running the following on our virgin RH 7.2 box.

    RedHat 7.2
    Apache 1.3.22
    Sendmail 8.11.6
    Bind 9.1.0
    MySQL 3.23.36
    mod_perl 1.24
    Kernel 2.4.9-31
    EXT3 Filesystem
    PHP 4.0.6
    PERL 5.6.0-12
    OpenSSH 2.9

    Also, does Cpanel give one the freedom to upgrade modules without breaking the panel? For example, is it possible to upgrad php or sendmail etc to the latest version when necessary or are we forced to go with versions specific to the panel?

    Thank you.

    Nobody knows? And whats up with Cpanel support. I called today to get a demo key so i could try Cpanel, only to get an answering machine? So at 11:30am California time nobody is working in support? My e-mails have been unanswered. Great Support. Maybe i should just call Plesk!

    Well, you asked a rather odd question (which may become clear once you're using CPanel) but I'll try to take a stab at it. Contact billing@cpanel.net about getting a 15-day test license - provide your servers' IP address in the email.

    As for the version... generally speaking, CPanel will install all this software, and does a pretty nice job of it to boot. I don't know that you could work with default installations of Apache, MySQL, PHP, etc, but perhaps someone else can answer that aspect of your question. Generally the recommendation is to do a fresh RedHat &server& installation, and CPanel's installer takes care of the rest.

    Currently an updated CPanel server would look something like:
    Apache 1.3.26
    (usual mods include PHP 4.2.3, Frontpage 5.0, mod_ssl, OpenSSL, and whatever else you select from a checklist)
    Exim 3.36-21_cpanel_antivirus (CPanel's version of the Exim mail server)
    bind-9.2.1
    MySQL 3.23.45
    PHP 4.2.3
    Perl 5.6.1
    OpenSSH 3.1p1-6

    RedHat version and file system choice is up to you based on the installation you perform. RH7.2 with ext3 is a good way to go. Kernel upgrades should be performed as you would with any other machine.

    Hope that helps. FWIW, CPanel support has generally been pretty quick about setting up test licenses, at least the couple times I needed one.

    Good luck!

    Not sure what you found so odd about my request! Im used to running Ensim on 22 boxes and they install certain versions of whats described above. Most of the time, Ensim installs old outdated versions of the above. They are still up to apache 1.3.22 if that says anything. In either case, i understand now how it works since we purchased a license and it makes more sense now. Thank you for your input.

    What I meant about the question being odd is that a lot of this is up to you. CPanel will install the latest Apache with the mods you select, and there will be recommendations about updating to a newer Apache when necessary, but I imagine you COULD keep running a slightly outdated version. Same applies to DNS - you could use an 8.x version if you prefer, but the default is to go with the most recent 9.2.1 And of course, the OS version and file system is really an independent issue.

    Glad you're giving it a shot. Good luck!
