I am looking to find out which one of these WHM/cPanel runs best on.

Centos 3
Fedora Core 2
Redhat 9.0
Redhat Enterprise Linux

SLC
cPanel Access Level
DataCenter Provider
Centos 3
Redhat Enterprise Linux
Redhat 9.0


I have used all three
runs like a dream on centos & RHE

Red Hat 9 is dead (not supported) except through legacy

You can use any of these OSs with CPanel/WHM. You shouldn't have any problem.

Go on, have a guess
I'd recommend RHE or CentOS as listed. FC2 and RH9 are both EOL and you extend the risk to your servers stability and security by running them.

I'd recommend RHE. We are having number of server runing RHE with Cpanel.

My older servers were RHE, and it ran with little problems. I think I'm going to try CentOS, because I think it is just a remix of RHE.

I normally stay away from FreeBSD like the plague, now it cPanel ran on NetBSD I'd love that.

I must admit that I've never been a hugd FreeBSD fan, but mostly out of ignorance. Built a server for cPanel a short while ago and got it all up and running with little fuss and a bit of help from Google :)

Although a little unfriendly, FreeBSD is one of the best OSs, especially the latest release. This is not to mention the fact that FreeBSD is, relatively speaking, the most secure OS. It is personal preference.

CentOS is red hat enterprise compiled from source with the red hat branding removed.
