A professional administrator uses management tools to increase his system’s efficiency. It’s no different for webserver stacks on our servers. Been using Cyberpanel since the 1.x branch extensively, and I like the performance, what I like less is slow update schedule and ongoing bugs that not solved fast enough. In areas of for example backups and migration.
Time to have a look at what alternatives there are in 2021. Last time I did a comparitive research like this I switched from using NGINX (2015-2017) to Litespeed (2018-2021), when everybody was still stuck at Apache. So you might learn a thing or two in this blogpost.
Prelimairy Researh list
In no order of preference (yet):
- Plesk Webadmin
- aaPanel … SuperB!
- Cloud Panel 1
Runcloud.io… not free
- Ajenti – Server control panel
- CWP (CentOS Web Panel)
- Froxlor.org – Server Management Panel
- Forge on Laravel
- Cockpit Project
Update: when highlightened in bold? That’s something I definitely like exploring later!
