Is there any plesk alternative for ngnix to setup in my current ubuntu droplet

Hi everyone,

I have a few nodejs/react websites and api running in my ubuntu server. I have one PHP as well.

When I need to configure ngnix for new websites for example create new conf in sites-available and sites-enabled I do it manually using command line.

Is there any tool I can use to achieve ngnix site configuration easily.

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

The closest thing to your requirements that I can think of is this free server control panel called CloudPanel which you could install via the DigitalOcean Marketplace:

The main difference is that this panel requires Debian and might not work on Ubuntu.

Alternatively, you could use Vesta Control panel it’s free and they use nginx out of the box. I believe that you can run it on Ubuntu, but it can only be installed on a fresh new server.

I personally prefer to do things via the command line, as that way I keep the server resources dedicated only to the websites running there rather than additional control panels.

Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
