Apache Applications Control Panels Ubuntu 16.04

Hi guys, I'm really new to managing a server. I already finished the getting started guide, and also successfully add a domain and point it to one of my Apache Virtual Host.

What I want is install a Panel, so it's easier to manage the server and the website hosted on it also minimizing usage of SSH terminal connection.

Will installing Ajenti Panel broke my current config?

I have not personally worked with Ajenti a lot but for just about every other hosting control panel a clean server is required. We have a tutorial here which also calls for it.

I would recommend against it but if you want to try it out safely you could create a snapshot of your server, attempt the install and if it fails or causes problems you could roll back. My suggestion would be to start with a clean server, install Adjenti and then work to secure the droplet further and take other steps you want to take.

Ajenti is an open source, web-based control panel that can be used for a large variety of server management tasks. It can install packages and run commands, and you can view basic server information such as RAM in use, free disk space, etc. All this can be accessed from a web browser. Optionally, an add-on package called Ajenti V allows you to manage multiple websites and email accounts from the same control panel.
