What control panel fits me best


Hey all

I've been looking around for a Control panel and hosting software for my dedicated server.
I choosing between the free once and notice there are a lot of them.
So was hoping for a little help picking

Im running Ubuntu 10.10 at the moment, not the best choice i know but thats what i got.

Got any suggestions?
Those i know of is:
Kloxo
isp-control
gnupanel
Virtualmin
ISPconfig3

These i seen most talk about.
Which one should i go for?
Heard lots about Virtualmin, that free version, big difference between that and pro?

Kloxo, but you may want to change to centOS.

It works good, the UI/UX is not that great but it does the job.

Kloxo + CentOS if you really need free.

If you don't mind cheap, direct admin + CentOS

I'd say of that bunch, my vote is for Kloxo.

HOWEVER, if you can take "cheap" instead of "free", DirectAdmin is a HUGE upgrade. DA gives a very well-polished interface and is easy for just about anyone to learn.

Kloxo is a fine panel, but can have a very steep learning curve for someone non-technical (such as your customers). Even semi-technical users (such as someone who has mastered cPanel but not much else) will struggle with it at first.

As long as you have some previous experience setting up services etc from scratch, I'd pick Webmin/Virtualmin from those anyday.

If you go with kloxo, be wary of things randomly breaking when you update! Seen a lot of that lately.

Hm ok heard a lot about kloxo and things breaking :p virtualadmin is interesting, free is enought or? And is it much manual work so to speak? How is it for the customer experience?

What about all the others I listed? Feedback on them?

Kloxos support for 64bit machines is still abit flakey however on 32bit machines when using a stable release everythings been known to be running fine...

Most of the problems you hear about Kloxo are either from whose who dont have a first idea or simply are upgrade junkies and yes if you dont know what your upgrading to you will break things or have configuration problems just like you have if you downgrade to EOL releases, etc

Kloxo is too buggy on updates. Complete mess.
I'm the furthest thing from an "upgrade junky", and my whole dev VPS got hosed.

ISP-Control is weak.
GNUPanel is crap, outdated, and apparently abandoned. (The forum is full of spam.)

ISPConfig 3 is awesome.
VirtualMin is awesome.

ISPConfig 3 has OpenVZ support. If using VirtualMin you would require CloudMin.

Can someone please comment further on ISPConfig 3 vs VirtualMin? Thanks.
