<b>“No offense but it was not a solution to my problem.”</b> <br> <br>None taken. It was not offered as a solution. It was offered as a suggestion.

No, I am not in love with CentOS. I have also done some research and developers recommend CentOS for it’s stability and performance where Ubuntu because it’s developer friendly and somewhat easy. Also I have been using CentOS servers for nearly 8 years and I am comfortable working with CentOS for my production website. The issue is I never setup CentOS server myself in past, that’s why I was asking about it. <br> <br>No offense but it was not a solution to my problem. It’s like, if I ask someone how to install a new disc brakes to my car and someone suggested that buy new Toyota.

I offered the suggestion as a person that’s relatively new to the Linux world, myself (less than 6 months, to be precise [no pun intended]). Before diving into Linux head-first, I researched the popular Linux distros a ton, and eventually chose Ubuntu (but only to start out with). <br> <br>If you’re in love with CentOS, by all means, stick with it. Having started to feel comfortable with Ubuntu, I only recently started playing around with CentOS (b/c it remains a popular distro). I wasn’t knocking CentOS. It’s just that in my – personal – experience of delving into Linux for the first time, it was easier finding easy-to-follow documentation for Ubuntu 99% of the time. <br> <br>There’s plenty of documentation out there for CentOS, it’s just that it wasn’t always easy to follow b/c it wasn’t ‘dumb-downed’ for n00bs, like myself. As I’m sure you know, CentOS remains very popular among enterprise users (although, arguably, Ubuntu has surpassed CentOS’s popularity). It seemed to me as though most articles were written for experienced system admins (where it was assumed that the reader could count on a minimum level of Linux knowledge). Again, just my 2 cents.

Sure, And if I could not find some resource for Ubuntu too then what should be my next option for OS.

Why not switch to Ubuntu, from CentOS? Arguably, Ubuntu is more “n00b” friendly. Case-in-point: You can find more articles/tutorials geared toward newbies written for Ubuntu.
