    Do you mean like Release vs. Current vs. Stable vs. Edge? The only other "distro" I can think of depends on your server OS.

    If you meant that, I'd suggest the release build. I think its stable enough to work mostly-properly.

    redhat enterprise 4 or centos 4 is the most used.

    Why centos 4 and no centos 5?
    which (RHE or Centos) is easier to software upgrade?

    and what is wrong with debian?
    is possible to install cpanel on debian?
    others threads are different


    thx very much

    Only difference between the two is cost really. CentOS is just a free version of RHE.

    OpenSuse is not supported so I wouldn't recommend it for cPanel/WHM ;)

    SuSE support is only for SuSE 10.0 and 9.0. We do not support SuSE 10.2, SLES, OpenSuSE or anything other than exactly SuSE 9.0 and 10.0 as far as SuSE goes.

    CentOS!

    Centos 4 on the latest Release build works well for me.

    Use Centos 4.5 or 5.0, don't use another distro. Don't ask why :). cPanel developers are too lazy to develop cPanel for other distros. There are some other distros that cPanel supports but most of them are too old and have some problems.

    For the record, we do support all supported distributions equally. We devote much of our developmental resources to OS support, not just for CentOS but for Fedora, FreeBSD among the other distributions we currently support.

    Traditionally, we only end support for a distribution once that distribution itself has reached EOL by its vendor (the makers of that OS themselves determine it's too old and cease releasing substantiative updates for that distro).

    Hello David, thanks for the reply. It is ok but the problem is cPanel only supports Redhat based (or rpm based) distros (except FreeBSD).

    There are lots of Debian (so as Ubuntu) users but we have to use Centos, Fedora etc. cPanel must support at least Debian or Ubuntu or both for my opinion. This is not too hard to implement for developers. But i am still thinking that they are lazy and don't want to implement :)

    The reasoning behind ceasing development of Debian support for cPanel/WHM is a lack of customer demand. Same goes for why we never moved forward with Ubuntu support.

    If there was substantial demand for Debian or Ubuntu support then we'd likely develop/revive support for those distributions. However, until then we're focusing on the distributions our customers request we support.

    Ok then you can create a poll for this or anything like that. Because I think that many people wants Debian (or Ubuntu) but don't tell this anywhere. I only have 4 dedicated customers that want to use Debian and cPanel. But because of this is not possible, they are using Centos. I am sure that there are lots.

    Debian support is good for us :)
