Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a shared hosting where I got used to using cPanel for managing my domains and stuff

Now I am moving to a (unix based) VPS hosting, and the plan that I have chosen comes without cPanel.

Since I have the root access, I should be able to install virtually anything I desire

So my question is

Can you suggest some open source\free solution which will give me the same features as cPanel?

UPDATE Found a similar post on ServerFault. http://serverfault.com/questions/106658/free-hosting-control-panels

I did search on Google and as well as ServerFault. I did get answers on some forums but was more curious to see what ServerFault has to offer on this –  RN. Mar 18 '10 at 13:30

I have recently switched to Virtualmin and aside from a few questions (all of whcih I've asked on here) I am very satisfied so far!

I definitely recommend you to use ispcp. It's opensource, and has a great community around. There still some rough edges at the moment, but you can use in a professional environment without much problems.
