What distro to go for..
« on: March 29, 2022, 12:25:43 AM »
I have been running Centos & DA for around 12 years now, but are down-sizeing my webhosting to only my own domains. The CWP controlpanel seems to suite me quite fine, and I feel it can be a stayer.

So I will setup a new server, and in that case I don't feel to happy about thinking I have to upgrade it again with a new OS in around two years. I have really liked Centos, so due to its EOL, I guess it probably will have to be Rocky or AlmaLinux (or maybe Oracle). What are todays known issues with these two distroes and CWP (if there are any), and which one of them are CWP probably tuning into replacing Centos?

I'm not sure about the fear for centos 8 stream with delayed cwp repos. I'm running it.
Did I make a mistake?

The issue with CentOS, is that there is no "In Place" upgrade option.  If you go 8, when 9 comes out, you will have to do a complete reinstall.   Unlike Ubuntu/Debian, where you can simply change the version in apt, and do an in place upgrade.  Not sure about the other 2 listed if that is possible.
