Ubuntu Server Or Debian

Jul 9, 2008

I've just ordered a dedicated server with Ubuntu server, but they've come back to me to say that they've had trouble installing Ubuntu server on these particular servers.

As an alternative, they're offering to install Debian. My concern is that I come from a windows background and have spent the last month reading and playing with Ubuntu Server in vmware. I'll be running a small handful of sites on the server and will rely on the apt-get and package installer in webmin to get things set up and for administration. I'll dabble in the shell a little, but only when needed.

Should I go with a different host that can offer Ubuntu, or will I be okay with Debian?

Ubuntu Or CentOS? (Or Some Other Distro?)

Jul 5, 2007

I've always used CentOS for my servers. But now there's this Ubuntu thing taking off!

Is Ubuntu taking off on the server side as well or is Rhat still king?

Is there a site where I can get % numbers for which distros are most popular (on servers, not desktop)?

(This is as a customer/admin not a hosting provider).

I'm leaning towards centos but am concerned that development priority in that distro will switch over from Xen to KVM as RHEL does. Which distro would you choose for dom0 and why?

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.

Ubuntu Server Edition Compared To CentOS

Aug 23, 2008

I asked this question before in the past and I still have to ask it: has anyone used both Ubuntu Server Edition and CentOS? I would like to compare both operating system, in terms of speed, performance, security, and stability.

I have decided to build my new server and use Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit operating system after using CentOS 64-bit operating system for a bit over a year now.

The reason why I have chosen to use Ubuntu Server Edition is because of the operating system's fabulous reputation among desktop PC users, and its large and helpful support community.

Support is what I need most, and Ubuntu seems to have it. I also am not the best with Linux yet, so it will definitely be needed. Ubuntu also seems to update its software faster than other operating systems.

I hope my decision to switch from CentOS 64-bit to Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit will not be in vain.

Can anyone compare these two 64-bit operating systems and possibly link me to some reviews, comparisons, and/or benchmark results?

I'm not a Debian user, so I want some advice how to install Debian 4 as guest OS on top of Centos 5.2 dom0.

Mostly on Google, there's a manual on Centos on top of Debian. I've tried to use the netinstall iso for debian and mount it on /var/www/html/debian and use it for remote install source. So far don't have any success on that.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Migrating From Debian To CentOS?

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.

Hassle Free CentOS/Ubuntu LAMP Install Disc?

Mar 5, 2008

I would imagine there's a source for this but google's not yielding much. I'm looking for a CD/DVD ISO that will essentially auto install and configure a linux box with at least SSH access so I can manually install the rest.

I know bluequartz does this, put the CD and the install auto configures pretty much everything. Where would one find one click install discs for either CentOS or debian/ubuntu?

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.

Quote:

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:

Code:
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.1-42.fc8"
ramdisk = "/boot/initrd-2.6.23.1-42.fc8.img"
builder='linux'
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'

Advantage Debian 64 Versus Regular Debian

Oct 9, 2008

I just ordered a server which has that setup:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Dual Core
8MB RAM
2x750GB RAID 1 HD

Now I wanna run it with DirectAdmin, but obviously DirectAdmin doesn´t support the Debian 64 which is installed but only 32 bit Debian.

Now I wonder wether I could setup a Debian 32 as well on that system and if yes, wether it would give me a deficit in Performance?

Or would you rather go with CentOS 64 which Directadmin supports?

Both will be in seperate datacentres but I'd like a secure tunnel so I can setup jobs to backup to one another.

How To Run PHP 4 And 5 In Ubuntu Without CGI

Jun 21, 2007

When we chose Symfony to implement [url], PHP 5 was needed but we only had PHP 4 installed in our Ubuntu hosting servers. We couldn¡¯t just migrate everyone to PHP 5 since some of client¡¯s applications were incompatible with PHP 5. Some tutorials were found online explaining how to run PHP 4 and PHP 5 simultaneously such as [url] and [url]but they all used CGI. As you probably know, CGI is not scalable and we needed to scale in PHP4 and PHP5 since we needed to server millions of hits in both configurations. The following are additional the requirements we had:

1. Run Apache

2. Use mod_php for both PHP versions.

3. Run eAccelerator with both PHP versions.

4. Use as many Ubuntu packages as possible to ease maintenance issues and easily deploy on multiple servers.

5. Use Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS

The solution we came up with was to run Apache 2 with PHP 5 and run Apache 1 with PHP 4 on separate IPs. Ubuntu comes already with these packages. The only package we had to compile was eAccelerator. The following lists the steps taken to get this setup:

Apache 2 with PHP 5

* apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php5-cli php5-curl php5-gd php5-mysql php5-dev make php5-mcrypt php5-imap
* vi /etc/php5/cli/php.ini and uncomment extension=mysql.so
* vi /etc/apache2/ports.conf and put Listen Your.IP.Goes.Here:80

* chown www-data /var/tmp/eaccelerator*
* chmod 700 /var/tmp/eaccelerator*

Php.ini On Ubuntu Is Confusing Me

Mar 11, 2009

I am all too familiar with php on my win box but now am working on Linux.

the extension_dir is commented out (??) however CURL does work but there is nothing about CURL in php.ini. I cant find any php.so files.

Also the php.ini file lives in /etc/php5/apache2

Does this look like a standard install? Where do the .so files live?

Ultimatly I want to install Turck MMCache which requires some extensions and when ever I try to do phpize there is the error message
Cannot find config.m4 (google is not helping solve the problem)

apt-get install m4 says I have the latest version.

phpize is a shortcut in usr/bin that points to etc/alternatives/phpize which in turn is a shortcut to usr/bin/phpize5
