which do you recommend running apache/tomcat on and why?



i personally prefer apache on fedora because the GUI tools in SUSE always screws up my httpd file, but i've never used tomcat on either.

Tomcat is a Java app so it shouldn't really make a difference which you choose as long at the OS can run Java.

hmm, ok, i thought perhaps it was different configuration on fedora and suse. i was considering overwriting my fedora box with suse that's why i asked. i guess if it's the same it don't matter which linux distro i use.

I personally, steer clear of both the Tomcat and Java installations that come with Linux distros. I install the JDK from Sun and get Tomcat from http://tomcat.apache.org.

So, for me, the distro doesn't matter.
If you're asking for a comparison between the pre-installed versions of either, then I don't know and wouldn't be the best person to answer your question.
