    Hello All,

    I have followed the "The Perfect Server – CentOS 6.3 x86_64 (Apache2, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)" tutorial, and have successfully installed ISPConfig 3 on a Centos 6.3 KVM.

    I have used kloxo for a bit and took a little bit to get my ways around ISPConfig, but so far I like it.

    I noticed that Centos is not one of the recommended OSes, but since I am more familiar with it, I would like to stick with it. So, naturally I have a couple of questions that would help me make the choice to stick with or steer clear from Centos + ISPConfig combo and try Debian or Ubuntu.

    1. what are the ISPConfig3 features that are sub-optimal or not fully functional on Centos 6.3?

    2. If there are missing features, is there a plan/desire to implement those at some point in the future? (any ideas of timings?)

    Kind Regards,

    The featues are the same on all linux distributions. The main problem with centos is that it has no central package repository like debian and using several external repos will cause conflicts over the time and yum destroys or overwrites sometimes config files when it installs updates so that services will fail until you fix that, this wont happen on debian or ubuntu. So there are no features missing in ispconfig, the problem is just that you will get problems with centos packages updates sooner or later or when you have to update centos to the next major version. And ispconfig is developed on debian, so it is the most stable and tested distribution for ispconfig, when you use centos, then its more likely that you encounter a issue.
