[Lucee] Re: Which Linux dist to run lucee?

+1 for CentOS, though OpenSuSE or SuSE Enterprise is a close second for me, and a first in some scenarios. Rackspace and Amazon are about the only hosts that offer it on VM’s though, unless you have your own servers you can provision. For a Linux noob, you’ll get up to speed faster and can configure your server more efficiently with SuSE’s YAST Software Management than you will with individual module configuration on RHEL or CentOS. Lucee runs like a top on OpenSuSE 13.

I’m not a fan of Ubuntu for the reasons Terry mentioned.

I would also recommend Apache if you’re new to Linux, if only because there’s much more documentation out there to help get you up and running.On June 4, 2015 at 11:21:00 AM, Terry Whitney (@Terry_Whitney) wrote:

I suggest CentOS to most folks who have everyday needs, and RHEL to those who extra level of support afforded with a commercial product. Both are stable, secure, and have ton of documentation.

Ubuntu, is bleeding edge. Its performance is lack luster, its configuration is anything but standard and security issues abound.

As for a web server, Apache is rock solid. The only reasons to go with lighthttpd or nginx is if performance is desired over features.

If you go with Ubuntu, I might suggest 12.04 LTS in production rather than 14.04 LTS. See the reasons here:

You can mitigate some of these issues, but 14.04 leaves you with a kernel that is going to be unsupported upstream. No bueno.

If you prefer a less bleeding edge distro you can try Debian.

You could also try FreeBSD, though config might take a bit more doing than other distros:

Thanks for your recommendations. I guess i will try ubuntu and CentOS. I already played with both a while ago.
