    i386 or x86_64

    I have centOS 3.5 installed (fresh install) running with cPanel as i386. Though I'm thinking about having it reinstalled with the x86_64 instead.

    Question is, are there a lot of bugs running Centos 3.5 x86_64, or should I stick with i386. Also i searched the forums, and really didn't come up with an answer.

    The bugs you hear with 64bit os, is not really os related in most cases, its the software you try to run on it which gives you the fits

    I see, have you used cPanel with CentOS 3.5 on x86_64 mode, and if so are there a lot of bugs and is it okay for a production server?

    Cpanel itself runs great on 64bit. Its the other software such as php, apache, etc that sometimes has problems, but thats nothing cpanel can do since its not their reponsibility to fix other peoples problems
