Control Panels LAMP Stack Ubuntu 18.04

Am a newbie. My website is already running on LAMP with specific configurations. Is it possible to install a control panel to manage a site that is already running? Specifically webadmin or ISPconfig. I want to add control panel because I want to easily add subdomains and manage other sites with much ease. Thanks

The best option would be to deploy a new Droplet with a clean OS, install the control panel software of choice, and then migrate your data from the current Droplet to the new one.

All control panels that I am aware of, and that I have used in the past, use their own repositories to help speed up installation. When the installer encounters a conflict during the installation, it'll fail to ensure existing configuration or software isn't rendered unusable.
