    Hi,
    Is there any preference of Linux to run MW?

    I am looking at a cheap VPS:
    3x vCPU Core
    40 GB SSD
    2.5 GB RAM

    I don't know anything about Linux so this is a learning experience for me :)

    They are offering CentOS 7 or 8
    Ubuntu 16 or 18

    Any preference? I have Ubuntu 18 on another VPS but I recall when I first tried MW it was installed for my on CentOS 7 (2CPU 2GB) with OVH.

    I did a search in the forum and looked in the KB, couldn't find a clear answer.

    Thanks

    @tdwuk - it comes down to personal preference in the end. I'm a centos guy myself, so i'd say go for centos 7 for now.

    @tdwuk yes as suggested by @twisted1919 go with CentOS (though its sort of personal choice just like using computers & mobiles ;)) and incase you need help let me know :)
