  • RedHat going pro...

    Any thoughts about setting up a RedHat 9 server when they will stop supporting it next month? Getting a new server from Dell next week, and I was considering putting RH9 on it... Guess I'll have to think it through some.

    What other options are there? Win 2003 advanced server / other linux distributions.

    What are good choices?

    Why not just go with that natural progression of RH and use Fedora Core 1?

      Actually that would be RHEL. Fedora is unstable for production.

            Go with RH Enterprise if you can. We use it on all of our Linux servers at work and it's great. It's basically RH 8/9 in the most stable of forms. Their release cycle for the enterprise version is extremely long, which is great for stability. Fedora will remain their "new technology" release just as the old free RedHat was. They take what is learned from those releases and incorporate them into the enterprise version.

                    That looks like it is for a different platform. I'm not current with platforms but the x86 RedHat edition is $1500.

                      For something like what we use, we'd probably fall under Small/Mid-Range server.

                      However I think with a few tweaks, you can basically get the same thing as the RH Linux AS by just adding the stuff from Fedora.

                          I'm running an FC1/cPanel box that is perfectly stable for a production environment (my home LAN server is running FC1 too). Just use yum for updates.

                          It isn't that I can't toddle. It's that I can't guess I'll toddle."

                            Would you be so kind as to point out what configuration was unstable running what software?

                              All Web hosts are recommending either Fedora or RedHat Enterprise or ES = Support for 2 CPUs and 8GB-RAM or AS = Support for up to 16 CPUs and 64GB-RAM , Both have automatic updating threw up2date, and will also update the kernel, if you set it up to do so.
