It is also a mistake to use Fedora 12 in production as support ended on it 
a couple of years ago, so there are bound to be security holes. It would 
be a better idea to use one of the Red Hat clones such as CentOS or 
Scientific Linux (if I remember rightly RHEL6 was based on Fedora 12 or 
thereabouts so they should be similar, but you will get security fixes,
