    Which Linux Os to create a Web Hosting server ?

    Hello All,

    What do you think of Ubuntu to setup a webserver?

    It seems pretty easy to setup : https://webdesigntester.com/setup-ow...-ubuntu-linux/

    The Altnernative i am looking at is Centos : https://www.krizna.com/centos/instal...centos-6-lamp/

    Thanks for your opinion

    It really does not matter. Use the one that you are most familiar with but if you choose Ubuntu make sure it is a LTS version.

    CentOS is very stable but uses older versions of software as compared to Ubuntu. You might want to look at CentOS 7 since it is the latest version.

    Do it the right way.
    Use a RH derivative such as centos or OL and use Apache not nginx first.
    Once you have the skills to use Apache, then do the same with nginx and understand the differences.
    That way you will have more than just a webserver, you will have understanding.
