    Looking for open source panel recommendations

    Bit of a strange situation here as I'm investigating panel software to help manage my servers at work. So I'm not in the hosting business but at times it feels like I am!

    My requirements are:

    - open source
    - linux based (Centos/Fedora)
    - ability to create apache virtual sites, aiases, locations etc
    - configure access to apache locations on a per user basis
    - I have an LDAP database of user I want to authenticate against
    - configure proftpd, create and manage multiple ftp directories
    - authorise proftpd access on a per user/per directory basis (each user has different or no access for each directory)
    - would love a magic installer for things like Drupal and Trac!
    - easy to install and manage
    - ability to manage multiple servers from one location would be nice
    - extendable so I could write plugins if need be
    - php or python based
    - manage domains
    - create/delete/manage mysql & postgresql databases

    I'm playing with webmin and it's an amazing product but the interface is somewhat cryptic at times.

    Any recommendations?

    The list of free software panels available has been listed here many times, and are easy to find.

    I've looked into numerous products already, but I'll look for the list. I was hoping someone could point one out that I've missed or isn't quite as well known.

    Thanks - Pixellent Interactive

    Have you tried the tiger theme for webmin. I think it has a better layout and is a little easier to understand.

    You also might want to try adding virtualmin to you webmin it is used for virtual hosting.
