We've got an old plesk installation today. Looking to replace the machine, and plesk/cPanel are pretty expensive. I've been looking at ispconfig, but it requires a lot of compiling in order to get quota and MySQL support for stuff like postfix etc. This is far from optimal because that means any security patch for one of the services requires compiling, testing, deploying etc - as opposed to just yum update / apt-get upgrade and check that all services are running.
Are there ppl here with experiences of other options?
Need basic functionallity:
web hosting, php/cgi etc
ftp, imap, pop3, smtp, dns
web control panel for customers
does not have to be extremely pretty
do not really care about support
it can cost money, but not thousands of dollars like plesk :)
Security patching will not require compilation of software or modules
