    Hi,

    This will probably win an award for silliest question ever asked, but,

    - How do I find out which version of Linux my server is running?

    WHM does displays this in the upper right corner:

    Code:
    WHM 8.5.4 cPanel 8.5.4-R7  
    RedHat - WHM X v2.1.1
    
    I know I have RedHat, but I doubt that this is the version nuber...


    Thanks!

    Or 'uname -a' to find the kernel version.

    Cool! Thanks for the help!

    "cat /etc/redhat-release" did the trick.

    Hi,

    I dont mean to be rude, but if you have to ask that question i suggest you find someone more experience to manage your server if you have clients.

    Hehe, thanks for the advice.

    Don't worry, I don't intend to have any clients. I am fully aware of my lack of experience with this. I'm only hosting my own site on the server, and the only reason I have this particular setup is because I need the bandwidth of a dedicated server, but I can't afford managed hosting.

    I also work in a complex, altbeit different technical field. Believe me, I understand the feeling. But I'm figuring my way through it, at noone's expense but mine, thanks to the vast anount of help available, especially through forums like this one. :)
