Smile ISPconfig3 with Debian Squeeze :)

I have been running a cluster (~10 nodes) of ISPC3 servers on top of Debian Squeeze for a couple of years now and I must say... It rocks.

As we say here in Finnish it's "Steady as a train toilet." Meaning it's so simple it never breaks down.

Thank you all for your hard work on this project.

Every now and then I read about the problems people have with Cent OS, OpenSUSE and Ubuntu and I wonder... why do they choose all those problems for them selves? Forget GUI, forget .rpm, forget ubuntu (unless you use LTS.)

You are just asking trouble if you use those "newfangled contraptions."

IMHO = ISPconfig3 + Debian Squeeze and you sleep much better.

runing our office servers now with Wheezy... well, it's just one server nowadays virtualized with proxmox... even using software raid

But the other servers are all debian squeezy (now oldstable). I have to update them to Wheezy

Yeah. I should have added Proxmox but I'm not sure it's time to upgrade Debian just yet.

PS. You do know that Proxmox does not support soft RAID?

they don't officially support it, but you can do it easily by
(1) installing debian netinstall
(2) select raid for partitioning
(3) after install, put proxmox on it

actually, they support raid officially.... just not sw raid.

True. I prefer Proxmox by far over any other virtualization software. It's really easy to install and cluster, it uses Debian [instead of any RedHat derivative (can you say XEN=yuk)], it's simple and yet has a lot of configuration options. I wish they would get LXC working and it would really be outstanding.

No idea what LXC is.... have you tried that Proxmox Mirroring yet? I saw a while back that you can setup a HA cluster... so if one machine goes down another takes the place.

Do you know if LXC has support for quota now? The last time I checked it, quota was not supported and without quota, you acnt use it for any serious hosting as you wont be able to set any webspace limits.
