How do I know what type of OS my VPS runs? Print

  • 32

Most of our customers' VPS's run on CentOS 5.

To get your OS, if you are on CentOS you can look at the file /etc/redhat-release, by executing the following command:

$ cat /etc/redhat-release

This should output something like:

CentOS release 5.x (Final)

Where x is the minor version number.

If you don't have this file in your VPS, then you are running another type of OS like Ubuntu.
