Best distro for a server...?
I need just LAMP and a FTP server, probably VSFTPD on my server - which is a distro which will quickly allow me to install this? ie. it must have the above as option in the GUI of the installer. Is there any reason NOT to use CEntos 7? For some reason my host uses 6 - did a lot change with 7 or something? If I could use 6, but just with the latest kernel, so that the latest security updates are in place, that would be great! - is this possible and easy? (i.e one command on the CLI?)
