    What's the X64 support like in cpanel and it's dependencies these days?

    I'm looking into getting a new server and I'm wandering if it's worth going down the x64 route for the OS so that I don't run into problems If I decide to goto 4Gb ram and beyond. ;)

    We have been running 64 bit centos servers for a number of years now and are very happy with it .
    Initially we been forced into it , cause the dual core opterons only played ball with the 64bit OS and looking back at this I need to say it was a blessing is disguise :)

    You don't need 64bit if you have more than 4GB ram in Linux. You can always install the PAE Kernal which allows upto 32GB RAM I think. I am running a server now with 8GB RAM CentOS 5.1 32bit and it actually automatically installed the PAE kernal for me and it shows 8GB RAM.

    From what I heard even from the cPanel people here, that there are some issues with x64 and EasyApache. I don't know if they are fixed yet but it would be nice to see x64 fully working a there are some advantages to having it.
