    FreeBSD 5.3 stability

    I’ve been running FreeBSD 4.8 and Plesk 6.1 for years and FreeBSD has been rock solid. However after using FreeBSD 5.3 and Plesk 7.5.3 for a few months, I find 5.3 to be very unstable. I’ve tested it on four different systems from old P3’s to brand new Pentium 4’s. I’ve used a variety of different drives and at least three clean reloads of the system and Plesk. I’ve had very random problems which I’ve never seen before and I thought I had found my latest problem when I loaded yet another drive and everything seemed stable. However, now if I do not keep a ping running to the system, any network access hangs for at least 20-60 seconds. If the ping is running all is well.

    Frankly I’m scared to death to put this thing into production. Does anyone have an opinion on the stability of FreeBSD 5.3? Is 5.4 any better? Should I go back to FreeBSD 4.9 or 4.10 or 4.11? I’m about ready to just give up and leave 4.8 running until it melts down then close up shop and start selling hot dogs for a living... :(

    I recommend freebsd 4.10 and plesk 7.1.7

    I will not consider upgrading to the 7.5.x series for at least another 6 months and its out of BETA testing :p
