[[email protected] etc]# update -u
There was an SSL error: [('SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify failed')]
A common cause of this error is the system time being incorrect. Verify that the time on this system is correct.
I got my box reformatted and fresh install of RH9, I tried running up2date -u , and it gave me that error. The clock date was updated manually by me by running date 080406512005, How do I get past this error and fully update red hat 9.
Then, what would you guys recommend I upgrade to and are there any how-to's for it? Is fedora core 3 good or is 4 good, or is cent os good?
I am looking for a QUICK and FAST way to install a OS and get a control panel up on the server.
I had hella trouble the past 3 days trying to get webmin installed on fedora core 3, but that was because I was doing alot wrong.
Can I get some guidance, maybe a little help if anyone has time to help me through this? ( I am past broke right now so i have ZERO Cash unfortunately, but help is much appreciated and I can setup a webhosting account or something in favor)
or centos 3.5 but not fedora. The fedora linux project is targeted at desktops, not servers, and has a very short life cycle. By going with fedora you are going to have to do major upgrades much more frequently then if you went with RHEL/centos both of which are essentially the same thing.

Fedora is fine for a server, and , in many cases MAY be the only thing you can use.
If you want a 2.6 kernel on your system (recommended in some cases), then you've got to use (at minimum) FC2 to obtain redhat support.
The later RHEL4 and CentOS4 aren't fully supported in numerous applications, mainly because of udev, partly because of SElinux, and the like, so you're advised to stay AWAY from those for the time being.
Regardless, the upgrade path from rh9 is pretty simple, and you should do it quickly, as rh9 is unsupported, and has been for better than a year now. Don't rely on fedoralegacy.
