Can i run cpanel on a Power PC dedi
Hey guys i want to know if i can run Cpanel or a web server it self on Power Pc arch
TO my knowledge NO
My understanding is it runs on X86 centos, redhat, oe fedora only. aka: rpm distros.
yeah, it does run on those distro.
And what can i use that blade with 14 server for?
Most of the main services (apache, mysql, php) will run under power pc however i don't think cpannle will. So if you know linux well enough you can go that route.
Ok, so i could use those blades as a mysql server and email servers?
Why not install a hypervisor on the PPC host and then start a VM that has a supported linux install to run cPanel on?
The only hypervisor able to run x86 code at reasonable speed rather than emulating a full CPU (like Bochs) would be PowerVM.

Alternatively you should be able to trade-in the PPC blades for a nice discount on new or refurb x86 blades.
If you don't mind an out-dated OS (not recommended), Fedora 12 supports PPC based installs. cPanel supports Fedora, so it could possibly work.
Also centos 4 ppc i can try that also?
As far as I know, CentOS never officially supported PPC and it was only beta.
Oh so it won't work? also i need a free linux distro to run powerpc so i can host atleast website or mysql server or something.
I don't believe cPanel current build system (i.e. EasyApache and stuff like that) will work with PPC. They are improving it, so maybe in future you won't have such problem, but for now you might have (never tried, though). You can however put database servers there. Not sure about email.
Ok guys i bought this server to use it for webhosting, i also have other servers running with around 23 domains.
So the only thing i can do with this blades is a mysql server.
i believe you can run other control panels. i can't imagine a professional hosting without cpanel, though... but there are other panels.
http://isp-control.net/ control pannle MIGHT work. Ask in there forums to see if its feasibly. ISPCP is hevely pear based so which is a very standard unix/linux language.
