    I recently ordered a Online.Net server, for the first time i have to install server and choose OS.
    I choosed Centos, and i have 3 choises:
    1) CentOS 7.0 64bit
    2) CentOS 6.5 32bit
    3) CentOS 7.0 64bit

    What do you suggest me? @MattW @eva2000 @Slavik @Tracy Perry @RoldanLT @Mike Edge

    Personally I will stick and choose CentOS 6.5 64 Bit Minimal.

    Add:
    If you can, Install a CentOS Minimal Server using VNC.
    Floren has an article about it.

    I would pick 6.5 because it is stable... 7.0 is too new and when it comes to OS it is not always a good idea to use the latest version! I suggest you to install the Minimal version and then manually install Apache, MySQL and so using "yum install..."

    If you have 4GB of RAM or more then you should go with the 64-bits version.

    Good luck and have fun configuring your new server!

    I prefer to use Apache as base and then nginx over it as a reverse-proxy system for images only. I also prefer to install and configure the software manually so suit my needs and have complete control over what is installed. Haven't used Centminmod ever so I can't vouch for it...

    I would say stick with 6.5 for now.

    For Centmin Mod nice overview read at https://xenforo.com/community/threa...ps-do-use-lamp-in-centos-7.80477/#post-808211
    For stability, I'd too stick with CentOS 6.5 unless you want bleeding edge - there's definitely kernel, TCP and disk performance in CentOS 7.0 but even I am only scratching the surface of what has changed under the hood for CentOS 7.0 - quite a few changes i.e. https://community.centminmod.com/threads/work-log-for-dealing-with-centos-7-0-changes-systemd.738/

    slacker, spin up a VPS on your promox server - Centmin Mod .08 beta needs more testing :D

    edit: oh and with online.net be careful they're known to give almost failing hard drives in their servers and there's long delays in getting them replaced

    I've had troubles with CSF and Plesk on CentOS 7, so I use 6.5.
