    Hi,

    Plesk 7.5.4 will support Redhat Ent. 4 (v4.1 i hope also).

    Does this mean it will support CentOS 4.1 also automatically ? (maybe after some modification to the 'release file')

    Are the version numbers and system internals of Centos exactly the same as Redhat ?

    we have installed the 7.5.4 beta on Centos 4.1 without problems. We had to alter the /etc/redhat-release file.

    RHEL x = CentOS x
    RHEL x update y = CentOS x.y

    so CentOS 4.1 = RHEL4 update 1
    and CentOS 3.5 = RHEL 3 update 5

    the rpm numbers are the same, except that "rhel" is sometimes changed to "centos"

    Ok thanks,

    Can the /etc/redhat-release file be restored to its original state after Plesk's install ?

    Pretty strange the beta doesn't support CentOS 4 out-of-the-box yet, since it DOES support RHEL 4 .... SW-Soft has the opportunity to officially support an entire OS by just modifying 1 line of code i guess.

    yes, you can restore it...

    [root@xs ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
    RedHat Enterprise Linux 4
    CentOS release 4.1 (Final)
