Hi, my small online buisness relies entirly on a very remotly hosted server,
if anything happened to that server, it'd be a good while before we could
I've been looking around for the best OS based on security, updates, and if
needed, remote upgradeing ability. I was quite impressed by OpenBSD's
security and achievments, however i also read that the release cycle is too
quick and upgrades can be "destructive"(?) Currently I think Debian is
winning with their apt-get seeming to handle distribution upgrades quite
smoothly(long term), however i would miss BSD's security levels.
Has anyone else handled a remote server over a long period without
physically touching it? How well does OpenBSD really upgrade?
So far we've been running redhat 6.2 but it "expired" and i don't want to
enter redhats upgrade cycle, or overpriced advanced server. The server
publicly serves DNS, Email, FTP, HTTP
Thanks for any suggestions :)
