    Gidday all,

    I've been testing WHM/Cpanel for the company I work for, and I was wondering what operating system people would recommend. Is there any one that cPanel is primarily built for or do they all have thier ups and downs.

    I'm used to using FreeBSD, CentOS but I would be ready and willing If I knew there was a prefered standard.

    Please feel free to include your pro's and con's for any OS, and notes on what each server would be best suited for (eg ...Server running XYZ would handle databasing and php better than ABC, which works better with basic hosting and email)

    Cheers in advance.

    This has been discussed several times before

    And ask 10 people and you will get 10 different answers

    Both freeBSD and RHEL/CentOS work well with cpanel

    What I would use for the deciding factor is what OS are you most familier with and most comfortable in the administrationl

    Do a search for cpanel and OS. It should turn up several threads

    Mmm

    Yeah I thought I might be able to gleen some un-biased info from any responses.
    No recent posts in the New Users Section.

    The main thing I'd like to know is - is cPanel at all coded better for any one OS..?
    Or shouldn't I ask that. har.

    When I tried it on FreeBSD it was ok, but required a fair bit of tweaking, (which is nearly always expected :-p) and the part that bothered me was that some extras were not supported for freeBSD while others were only for it.. etc yada yada.

    I would still welcome any opinions, even if they are a little biased.
    Give us some info on what you use yours for, and how well it does it.

    Ciao,
