Are slackers using Drupal

Looking at Drupal and ISPconfig as web tools but slackware is not one of the supported distro according to queries. I have never used any but slackware so I am wondering if any Slackers are using these tools anyway or what alternatives for slackware are there? Thanks

All that tends to mean is that they have access to a limited number of systems that they can replicate your setup on. So I would assume that they do not have access to a Slackware box for support issues. As long as you have Apache, PHP and MySQL and admin rights on the box and Apache/SQL you are good to go.

The distribution doesn't make any difference at all. Drupal's just a bunch of PHP files, and they handle the same way on all distros (once the LAMP server's up, of course).

I run Drupal on my Slackware boxes - it runs fine but then there's no reason why it shouldn't. The prior posts have highlighted the reasons for this.

Great! Thank you. What do you think of ISPConfig? Is it a dependable tool?
