#1 Postby mastypk » Jun 26, 2010 8:56 am

you don't need any control panel as such either for application server or file server , control panel only just makes things easier

but if you don't know much abt linux command lines , use a control panel

I am not linux specialist. Please let me know what control panel will you prefer?

Cpanel is too costly for running on 8-10 servers.

Can you recommend any freeware suitable for xfile sharing pro?

Kloxo, webmin other? Which is suitable?

Best Regards

If you're purchasing at the volume you're claiming, it's very easy for you to negotiate licensing with your host. It's in your host best interest to sell you on their servers... Them paying $5 dollars a month for your license wont send them to the poor house.

I've always gotten free licenses for things like Enterprise, Urchin, and other BS licenses that some hosts charge for.

If you're only buying 1 $200 server... Don't bother.

Hope this helps.

if you got centos and you only want apache on it then you can easy install apache on it

just use this command

Code: Select all

yum install apache
yum install perl


yum takes care of everything and the homedir is /var/www
if i am not wrong

anyway , the smal problem with this is that you need to manual config apache a little to point to your /home dir (like /home/site/ )

so if you know a little bit of linux , or you know how to edit files (you can always use ftp to login to root :P makes it easyer to edit files) then that is the cheapest solution

if you want it realy easy , you can install LAMPP (Linux Apache Mysql Php Perl )
only problem is the security with it (nothing is secured on it , need a bit of work to secure stuff)

if you still want a control panel , you can maybe take a look at Xpanel (or was it Zpanel ?)
it is almost the same as cpanel only open source (and harder to install)

i would suggest to take the yum option because then you got everything you need with out using extra ram/cpu for the stuff you not need (like mysql)

for the rest , you can use this site to search specific for linux stuff

http://google.be/linux

hopely it helps you :d
