Favourite Linux OS for VPS installs

#1
Personally I prefer CentOS as I have been using it for years. Our free VPS supports a number of Linux flavours including Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Fedora, Open Suse and others.

I also prefer CentOS for the exact same reason. It's what I've been used to. But I am burning to try out Debian with Nginx. I learned for the first time that Apache is using much more resources than Nginx. So hence why 512 RAM on my VPS here is not really enough for using my WEBUZO control panel. Apache eats resources. Whereas Nginx has a proven record of using much less. Hence probably why Nginx is used with the new popular free VPS Vesta Panel. Nginx however is not for the uninitiated and requires a very big learning curve. I'm hoping to try it out though in the foreseaable future and be a little more adventurous with using Debian.

I am debian lover. Debian with nginx is very nice for reasons as Genesis said. There is not much really to say, but in my opinion it just works better than CentOS as it is much simpler.

I used to love Debian, but now I find myself using CentOS more and more. Debian doesn't seem to be concerned about security as much as they do bickering about FOSS. See the recent issue with xscreensaver which had large warnings that using it would make the system insecure. The Debian decision? Edit the code to remove those warnings.
See also firefox/iceweasel.

Ah well, that saves me from trying out Debian. I'll give it a longer while until it's safe and secure again. Tongue

I prefer Debian.

It runs very efficiently, with the package manager using substantially less memory and CPU then the CentOS counterpart yum.

I'll be honest - CentOS 6 is also an all time favorite for me, as I prefer the layout of RHEL much more than Debian.

Operating systems have their pros/cons - it all depends on what you want to accomplish.

Have a VPS with 32MB of RAM? Use Debian.

Want to run cPanel? Use CentOS.



I dislike Ubuntu because it's managed by Canonical, a commercial corporation which defeats the purpose of community oriented Linux distributions like Debian.

I personally like Debian so much because you can easily find everything you need about that OS. Commands are easy to remember as well.

Personally i like unbuntu, has a nice feel. Clean and just seems like a decent one to me.
#10
Ubuntu in my book is too bloated, however it is very simple to use with apt-get

For stability reason is why I choose CentOS7. I also like the yum protocol

KloxoMR also gives you option to use Nginx as well as lighttpd, which another very small web server.

I have voted for Ubuntu because is the only that i have use but reading your posts I will reconsider. I would like to use a distro that use efficiently the resources. I think I will give it a try to CentOS.

Why do you prefer Ubuntu over other distros?

is there ubantu support xtream code in this vps
#17
@azoorash can you provide more details on xstream?

I've found it so far as a download manager, a 3d rendering utility, and a java library.

The download manager is native to ubuntu, so it should run, although I wonder at the usefulness  of it on a small vps.

The 3d utility is windows/macOS only, so unless it works in wine (and I won't be purchasing a license to test it) that's probably a no.

Java runs in ubuntu, so the java library should work. Java is a ram hog though, and while it would probably run on half a gig of ram it'd likely be slow.

I did choose Fedora 20 when applying here. My idea was that I would upgrade it afterwards to the latest version and kernel and start experimenting stuff. Unfortunately, that won't/didn't work given the virtualization solution used by Giga VPSes.

In reality, anything RH-package management (RPM) based would do the trick for me. CentOS is the way to go when using a VPS for production.

I'm a Debian user for 8 years. I have experience with many distros in the past. (Gentoo, Fedora, Red Hat, Mandriva, OpenSUSE, Slackware, Solaris (Unix), FreeBSD (Unix), NetBSD (Unix) ). So i can say that Debian comes first for me, it is for advanced users who like to customize their system, 2nd place is Gentoo that is for MORE advanced users, and in the 3rd place they are Fedora and Red Hat for them who want a safe distro customized and ready to sail without any fuzz.
