Re: Again, but with a twist: control panel

Ideally, the solution should be quite 'lightweight' and doesn't try to do too much (like Plesk and things), but is even rather limited. Also it would be multi-server capable.

Hi Frederik.

I've been looking for something very similar and not been able to find a solution, so I've come to the conclusion that I need to find others who have this problem and work together to create a package or packages to fit the needs of small ISPs running Debian.

My thought was to create control panels that are abstracted from the servers themselves (e.g. for mail the server could be Exim or Postfix or Qmail, etc) to allow a consistent method of managing the servers.  This would require some duplication of effort to make the available options be able to be set for all the different common implementations of servers on Debian, but would probably make the front end easier to develop...

If you do find something, I would appreciate if you point me in that direction.  If you would be interested in working with me find others and to develop this (maybe as a Sourceforge project), I would also be interested in hearing from you.
