Default Vps server how to upgrade Questions

I am thinking of purchasing a VPS server and would like to know a couple of questions

Just to let you know I know very little of the linux would

1. Which of these are the easiest to update (Update meaning like upgrading a php5 to a newer version or mysql) CentOS or Ubuntu ?

If so what are the commands to do this if it can only be done in a command line.

2.Does anyone know if I can do this within cpanel ?

This VPS Will need to be PCI Compliant

Both should be the same, it really just depends on which distro you like better.
While CentOS is based on RedHat, Ubuntu is based on Debian.

I personally use debian/ubuntu. Never liked redhat and their whole structure..
If you are not familiar with any of them, pick one and go with it..

When updating both have their tools to make the job simple.
CentOS uses yum (not sure what the whole command is)
Ubuntu uses aptitude.

On debian (same as ubuntu) i simply run:
Code:
aptitude update
aptitude safe-upgrade
This will update ALL the software installed on server with newer version.

It's really simple as that..

How to set up server, look on your left you have lots of tutorials for CentOS or Ubuntu.
