Re: Debian or Redhat 7???
Well first, I repent of calling Linux 7: Redhat 7. Yes I am new. I have
been maintaining my own box from a su level for about 3 months. That is why
I was calling in an expert to install Debian tomorrow. It has become quite
obvious to me that I am way over my head in trying to get my server secure.
But I would also like to say that I was humbled by the sheer volume of
caring replies. I want to say that I have taken note of all of them and
My personal/superficial conclusions to my own questions based upon your
replies is that Debian (as a software package) is a little more secure (for
a variety of reasons), than Redhat 7. But the biggest factor is me getting
pro help by someone who knows what he is doing. Done!
There is one primary reason why I would have chosen Debian over Redhat in
the first place. The auto-update feature. I was on line for the Redhat
Network. It never notified me of anything. Even now, after being hacked, is
gives me those nice smiley icons saying all is ok! <g>
For me to get the box set up, then issue a one line command as the SU via
"CRT" program in SSH mode, to update is breathtakingly attractive!
