ServerPilor + froxlor in the same server?

Security Getting Started Ubuntu

I am new on unmanaged VPS and I try to understand how a few things work. From what I have read, I found ServerPilot (free version) a great way to keep my server "secured" with automatic updates and firewall.

However, I like the idea of froxlor which is selfhosted and you can monitor usage and creating new customers etc etc

Since I don't want my Droplet only for Wordpress sites, but also for Python apps, do you think that there will be any conflict to use both? ServerPilot for automatic secure updates and Froxlor for the dashboard?

Or do you have something else to suggest?

Hey there!

Though it may be possible, I would recommend not mixing the two. Basically you end up with two things that intend to have full control of the software stack on your server, and neither is aware that it has to be concerned with the well being of the other. It's kind of like having two people driving a car, but neither are aware that the other is there. The results could be quite a headache :)
