I forgot to say one thing. There is not a connection on each hit,
connections are made each time an apache process is spawn. So if you
have a well configured apache, it wont spawn processes all the time, and
wont make new connections very often. And AFAIK (correct me if I'm
wrong), a new apache process takes quite some time compared to
establishing a new SQL connection, so it's not that bad.
I've been using ISPConfig for about a year and overall have been very
happy with it. Normally we use commercial panels such as Plesk or CPanel
and while they are more polished (plesk especially) its not often I've
found myself wanting for functionality.
Performance wise the panel doesn't seem to make a huge impact on the
overall system and by staying up with their regular releases we have had
no security issues to date.
