Thread: CentOS vs. Ubuntu as a Web Server

  1. If you don't visit, how will you know when it's fixed?

    Seriously though, I'm seeing a problem and we're currently troubleshooting.

    Really? NB has been seemingly faster for me over the past week or so.

    I am not sure what you mean. I have a VPS server running CentOS and it run the current versions of just about every Linux tool, including MySQL and PHP. I have never seen a problem running any script, except some old legacy software that needed code updates.

    Are you not able to do CentOS upgrades?

    Are you running CentOS 5.4? That is the current version. It runs Apache-2.2 and php-5.1.6. These are the default versions.

    I have two scripts that will not run under PHP 5.1.6. Ubuntu currently defaults to 5.2.6-3, which is enough for both scripts.

    We put our last CentOS box down yesterday. We're now load balanced on two Ubuntu boxes, with another Ubuntu box as a shell server. We also have an OpenBSD box running as a firewall.

    I'm still as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs though. We've seen some truly odd issues with RAM usage. It's too soon to know what's going on yet, but I'm keeping two tabs open running `top` constantly.

    I thought you were talking about an ancient version of PHP.

    I am also a bit surprised that you have two scripts that require a leading edge version of PHP.

    PHP 5.1.6 was released on 24 August 2006.

    September is "ancient" in Internet time.

    As was I! I could have done a custom compile of PHP, but that would not have fixed the file handle issue.

    One thing I find that helps with ram usage is to actually tweak your MaxClients and other apache settings so apache stops serving requests right before you run out of memory and start swapping.

    This has saved me many trips to the datacenter.


    And in this debate, I would vote Debian. Ubuntu's mature and stable older brother

    Nice thing with Ubuntu/Debian is you can always configure your sources to include any packages you may need. If you need to run a cutting edge PHP system, there's backports or sid or a handful of other options.

    So If I want to install PHP 6 on my CentOS box it wont work?, is that whats being said here? Well I thought it would work. I thought the PHP was an executable dependent on its own.. what does it need from the OS?
