Need help with FreeBSD vs Debian Decision
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 26, 2003
Ok... I have my choices between Debian and FreeBSD to settle in for my production server OS of choice.
I'm probably going to stick with Mandrake and/or Fedora (I like dabbling ) for my Desktop OS, but I need alternatives for my production non-eyecandy OS, now that Redhat had decided to discontinue official support for opensource version of Linux (meaning security updates in one fell swoop, an easy mouse click or two)
I like FreeBSD very much- I lease 3 FreeBSD web/email servers at Dulles VA at a really robust datacenter with lots lots of bandwidth (multiple OC-12, OC-3, etc.)
I'm fairly comfortable with FreeBSD. However, all my desktop OS's are various forms of Linux...
So this translates into me feeling more adventurous in Linux than I do in FreeBSD, despite the fact they have common roots.
So what I am asking of you guys...
1. Opinions of FreeBSD vs. Debian GNU/Linux?
2. How easy each is to keep updated with all the various security patches? One thing I REAL
CentOS or Debian or Ubuntu 11.10 for a server environment
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 10, 2012
Before anything get's technical here's what I plan on using.
Ruby on Rails
PHPMyadmin (just use to it)
I originally had gentoo installed but because it has constant updates and they do take for ever to compile and the recent update broke etc-update for updating config files.. Arch is in the same position and it's an OS you can update pacman(since there's no go gui to gather data and only one terminal window is counted..)
Of course I know how to easily fix those issues in a running box but I don't recommend gentoo or arch for production boxes.
Now brings me to the actual question, what do you guys thing would be better for a server environment? CentOS 6, Debian 6, Ubuntu 11.10.
I have experience with all of them, but never ran any of them in a server environment.

PPTP VPN on Debian VPS (port 1723 Not Open)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 6, 2012
I have been trying to setup a vpn for my ipad all weekend long. I believe i have set it up right after all the tutorials I have read. The problem is, when I try and connect, I am told the server is not responding. I also tried on my Ubuntu box, same problem. I did an nmap on my server on port 1723. This told me the port was closed. I put
Debian Stable vs Ubuntu LTS for Server?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 29, 2010
Which is better platform for a professional use server?
Debian Stable or Ubuntu LTS?
The third party software we plan to use, works on both. Which one is better on it own merits?
Take into account things like the kernel (Ubuntu for example has its own custom kernel for servers), and other Ubuntu specific customizations.
I keep switching back and forth, and I need to decide so I can recommend one or the other to a client. Right now, I think I am going to choose Debian Stable.
Debian Vs Ubuntu for a Server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 2, 2009
So, I'm planning to buy an older PC and turn it into a small webserver running webmin, apache, ssh, and probably mysql. I'm probably going to be buying an athlon era computer if I can, so I might be limited on ram.
I figure it will be very similar running the two as a server, does anyone know any notable advantages/disadvantages? Also, which version of debian would you reccomend I try out for a server?
Setting up a Debian 7 server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 11, 2013
I have some general questions about setting up a Debian 7 server for home use. I was going to build a server using old hardware but today someone gave me an older Dell Pentium 4 1.8ghz system with 1.5Gb RAM, 80GB hard drive, and 10/100 NIC. I assume this would be enough to run Debian server but I was wondering if there would be any advantage to using something like a dual CPU motherboard. I could also get a case that will hold multiple hard drives should I decide to go with a RAID array.
The main thing I would use the server for would be as a proxy/firewall but I would also like to learn some Apache and MYSQL administration. I won't be using it to do any "real work" but I also don't want it running so slow that it's a pain to use. I don't mind spending a little money if it would make a difference. For instance, I have a basic D-Link broadband router (EBR-2310) that I'll be using to connect another desktop and laptop. Do you think this would be enough or should I purchase a
Debian vs Ubuntu?: Linux Magazine slams Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 19, 2006
I was just at the book store today, and there is an article in the back that slams Ubuntu and how it is hampering the Debian project.
I didn't buy the magazine, at $10 I thought they were mad.

ubuntu commands vs. debian commands
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 9, 2009
since ubuntu is based of debian, then are all the commands the same, like apt-get?
obviously i dont expect the respitories to be the same, but can i take my knowledge that i have learned in ubuntu and apply it to a Debian server easily?
