    I'm not a new user by any means (several years using Cpanel here), but since this is a "new" question I am posting it here.

    I started by using the redhat/fedora based builds with Cpanel, but a while back (couple years or so I think) Cpanel stopped supporting Fedora for a bit, so I started new servers with CentOS.

    CentOS is now working fine for me, but I am adding an additional server and I want to make sure that I'm still doing the right thing as far as an OS goes.

    I have been to the list here:

    http://www.cpanel.net/products/cPanelandWHM/linux/sys_requirements.htm

    Basically I'm just looking for recommendations.. whatever distro is free and doesn't have any weird quicks with Cpanel. Cpanel will be the primary and only use of this server.

    Input appreciated.

    (I searched and didn't see a thread like this already.)

    If you are familiar with CenOS then it is best to use.

    Thanks,

    Most users tend toward either Fedora or RHEL/CentOS, thus those will have the best support

    basically CentOS and RHEL mostly same, if you don't have any issues getting license for RHEL use RHEL. If the license is an issue for you, Use latest CentOS.

    Please avoid Fedora, its life time is very short and its more towards desktop than server.

    if you need more stable OS use FreeBSD
