Hi Guys! Does anyone have a replacement for the zPanel installation tutorial for Ubuntu 12.04 that used to be located here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-and-configure-zpanel-on-an-ubuntu-12-04-vps Seems like it would be extremely helpful for those looking for a domain management interface on Digital Ocean. If there are any other alternative tutorials, please share!

I believe DigitalOcean is trying to avoid zPanel installations on their servers because the panel has security problems.
yes, very true. Zpanel has some serious security issues as @eli stated. DO has removed that tut to avoid any responsibility of that since it is high risk to customers.

I also urge you to avoid it and use an alternative instead such as directadmin or virtualmin.
Look at this thread on Open Source Control Panels:
