I wondered if someone could help me make a decision...
I have been using Centos 6 for years and its very stable. But the PHP version is 5.3 and I can add a second version 5.4. Well, 5.4 is old now, there's newer versions not available for Centos.
I need to think of future proofing my servers for as long as possible. I ideally would like a server that I can have PHP 5.5, 5.6 in the future.
Firstly, does Centos 7 have these versions, and if so, is Centos 7 a stable OS to use right now? And with Virtualmin/Webmin on it? If so, then I can move onto Centos 7 and have newer PHP. But if its not syable, buggy etc. then I dont want to move to that, but then I am stuck with PHP 5.4 on Centos 6.
I dont want to use Ubuntu, I have installed an Ubuntu server and got Php 5.6 on it, but I am finding I get fcgi errors on that often with 500 errors on sites, I cant fix them, and this has really put me off using Ubunu when my Centos 6 installations have been very stable. You also cannot move sites between Centos and Ubuntu servers using Cloudmin as they dont work due to errors in the apache conf files.
