CentOS 8

Greetings, which application they recommend me (free) that it serves me to administer the server CentOS, something like a Cpanel.

I already have configured zimbra, mysql, apache, php, vsftpd. What I need is to be able to administer it from a web type console.

Thanks

Hi @edwardocando,

Well, cPanel is easy to use however, it’s not really free, same can be said for Plesk. They are all really easy to use but they are paid after a trial period.

Having said that, on CentOS, you can use CentOS’s webpanel. You can check it out here -> CentOS Web Panel. Having said that, in order to install it, I think you’ll need to remove your MySQL, and Apache as it installs it’s own.

Hello, edwardocando

There a lot of web panels available (most of them are free to use) that you can choose in order to manage your server. What I can recommend is to try them as in this way you can see if it really suits your needs.

I will list the top control panels that I recommend:

CentOS Web Panel
Vesta CP
Webmin
Ajenti
ISPConfig

and of course I need to mention Plesk although it’s not free it’s been available for a while and it’s always been the main cPanel competitor. It has a lot of build-in features and a lot of plugins that you can install and you can always reach to their support team if needed which is something that might come handy in time.

You’ve got some great options if you want to use a control panel with your server but you don’t want to pay for a license. I’ve tried to lay out most of the available options, but which one is best will ultimately depend on your individual needs.

Alex
