Suse, Debian, Fedora Or CentOS

Jul 21, 2007

I will be dropping my shared-hosting plan and ordering a small VPS as soon as I can decide on which operating sytem to use. It seems that most companies offer the following choices: Suse, Debian, Fedora and CentOS.

I freely admit that I am a full-fledged n00b when it comes to linux and will be learning as I go, the problem is I just don't know where to start because I'm not familiar with any of them. I have at least heard of Suse, Debian and Fedora before, but didn't even know this CentOS existed until yesterday... and yet, it seems to be one of the more popular choices.

So I was wondering if some of you seasoned VPS veterans here could recommend an OS, tell me what the differences are, or otherwise share any experience you might have with any of them.

How Do I Setup A Ubuntu DomU Guest On A CentOS / Fedora Core XEN Server

Jul 27, 2008

how to install Ubuntu (either 7.10 or 8.04) as a XEN domU guest on a CentOS 5 / Fedora Core 8 XEN dom0 server?

I have tried installing Ubuntu as a fully virtualized guest, but the Ubuntu CD doesn't even bootup. I get the Linux bootloader, and that's it,it doesn't continue to boot. Odd.

When trying to install a Paravirtualized guest, I had to use the debootstrap method, but can't get it to boot up.


xm create anya_zanet
Using config file "/etc/xen/anya_zanet".
Error: (2, 'Invalid kernel', 'xc_dom_find_loader: no loader found

This is the xen configuration:

kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-"
ramdisk = "/boot/initrd-"
memory = 256
name = "anya_zanet"
vcpus = 1
vif = [ 'bridge=xenbr0' ]
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/System/anya_zanet,hda1,w' , 'phy:/dev/System/anya_zanet,hda2,w' ]
root = "/dev/hda1 ro"
on_poweroff = 'destroy'
on_reboot = 'restart'
on_crash = 'restart'

how to get Ubuntu working on a CentOS / Fedora Core XEN server?

OpenSUSE, CentOS Or FreeBSD?

Dec 18, 2008

*NIX systems and am only used to FreeBSD so far. My other only very small and modest experience was with SuSE Enterprise Server (SLES 10). I love FreeBSD (sorry Linux fans) and am somewhat biased towards Linux in general. Although I know the majority of websites are probably hosted by Linux. I am going colo so OS choice is down to me.

However what bothers me even more than this is whether OS should be properly supported (like SLES, RHEL) or totally free (like OpenSUSE, CentOS or FreeBSD)?

What would you recommend as a stable OS for i386 platform and what would be your choice support-wise?

PHP 5.1 To 5.2 On Fedora Core 5

Jul 9, 2008

I have a Fedora Core 5 VPS currently running PHP 5.1.6, and wish to upgrade to 5.2 so I can run Magento eCommerce software.

I've managed to install yum, and after running yum update php, it just updates to 5.1.x still

My understanding of it currently is I need to point it to new repositories with 5.2 in?

Mar 8, 2008

I have a server running Fedora 4 and WHM/cPanel. I would like to upgrade the linux kernel to the latest version, so mosey in via SSH and type "yum -y upgrade". It downloads a few things and tells me everything is hunky dory.

Now, the version it says it is currently running is: 2.6.17-1.2142_FC4 #1 Tue Jul 11 22:41:14 EDT 2006

Is that the really the newest version available? Maybe I'm confused as to how this works, but if I go to kernel.org it tells me the most recent stable version of the kernel is Is this because I am running FC4?

Fedora (Core 6) And Creating Partions For CPanel

May 10, 2007

I am doing a FRESH install of Fedora Core 6 onto a brand new server. I have 2 questions about partitions on there..

1. Should all the partitions (/home, /backup, /var etc..) be of file system type "ext3?" I could not find any documentation on this anywhere.

2. A question about about LVM (Logical Volume Management). Are you supposed to create a different LVM for each partition? Or just for /tmp?

Jan 29, 2015

I am attempting to migrate from a debian os server with the latest plesk 12 to Centos (rather cloudlinux) and would like to know if there are any options that should not be checked during the process?

I recently tried to do the normal procedure, which is to transfer all objects, etc. And for some reason the percentage went from 1-50% to then back to zero.. but when clicking to check the current status, its still working

Status: in progress
Current operation deploying domain.com
current operation progress: empty bar

Different sites are transferring, but I am not sure if the migration will effect the system because the difference in OS folder structure and file location.
