    Question CentOS 32 or 64 bit version for file hosting?

    what you thinking, what is better, 32bit or 64bit centos for file hosting server?

    On this server I`ll have 8GB ram but look like now that is not problem for 32 bit linux, can use all of it...also I`ll use nginx web server, imagemagick and few other applications...

    32 or 64 bit and why?

    64bit OS. better support for more than 4GB even though you can use 32bit with PAE.

    Yup, I would say anything 4GB and up would need 64bit. Server is able to use full resources available under 64bit.
