Did you run into any issues (and > solve them)? Hmm... It's not like that. Currently, we're using CentOS as based distribution, that's because of the support. But having quite a lot of security problems, I'm seriously thinking about switching to OWL with Plesk/cPanel. I got to recalculate many things so thi won't be an easy decision :/ Thanks to the notes of Galaxy now I can see how the things needs to be done to get Plesk working - that's really important. > > > Setting up Plesk on OWL is awesome solution, especially when it comes to > > security ... > > Actually, I wouldn't call Plesk (or cPanel for that matter) installed on > any OS reasonably secure for my own use.

Especially, when we had a critical security issues thanks to the 2.6.x kernels :/ You're absolutely right writting about killing security by Plesk/cPanel :/ > Actually, posting to owl-users is quite close to placing text marked > "experimental" on the web since there are web-based archives of this > list.

I've an idea :) Solar, what do you thing about creating something like 'how to' link at the http://openwall.com/Owl ? Owl-users could post here, the ready step by step solutions, the rest of list could make/annonce/apply :) "patches" to the text, and after that, the solution could finally go at the web The people who're visiting Openwall's website could see that the distribution has ready to use solutions so they don't need to gooooogle to get things done :) That's really helpful, especially for new users -- Krzysztof Śniadoch <krzysiek at securenet.pl> http://www.securenet.pl - Information Technology http://hosting.securenet.pl - Dział Hostingu [ GPG KeyID: 1F7969B8 ] fp: 4E13 4F89 0A17 A47F 883B 6855 421B E4E8 1F79 69B -- -- To unsubscribe, e-mail owl-users-unsubscribe <at> lists.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
