Administrator tool for centos

Cpanel is a Administrator tool which I believe a lot of us might be familiar with ..
But being an administrator of the system itself one doesn’t really need such huge tool to
support day-to-day operation unless you’re planning to host a lot of virtual host at one place..

Nevertheless that would be a lot more option to do that efficiently also.
as only need to add line at vhost in httpd and point the A record in server,
add access to ftp folder and all.. well, that wouldn’t be easy enough to support > 1000user at a time..
[ad#postad] Well.. if doesn’t even reach 10 user.. I don’t think it is a wise option .. anyway
not worth a hassle and some more need to pay for cpanel license..

USD 427 a year.. is about RM 1494.00 a year.. or RM 124.00 per month..
lol.. license only .. not included the nameserver / domain hosting and all yet..
why not as well buy a reseller package from here
which will cost you about RM 130/month with 60Gb hardisk and can host upto 37 account.

Well.. as per my experience.. I would prefer DirectAdmin instead of the cpanel for administrator is
you’re dealing with costumer of having tendency to manage their own domain. i.e pointing the MX to gmail for instance.
Some of big hosting company already include option their customer to choose either DirectAdmin or Cpanel,
depend on user preference actually.
[ad#postad] And for small scale administrator it would be enough with just Webmin as administrator tool..
Nevertheless , I would still prefer the ssh with root login and poke around with config myself instead..
It would reduce the unnecessary load to the server itself.. One even suggest to stop webmin services
whenever not using it and just start it only when need to do something with it..

If got “someone” above to report to..
Awstats and all other report generator still would be able to fulfill the need of
understanding the utilization of the server itself. Other tool you may ask..
that would be TorrentFlux.. BitComet with HTTP interface and all..

Well, Squid report generator do reveal a lot of thing but not I think it would not played well with the staff privacy and all..

hehehe…

    4) Module parameters.
    ———————
    The following module parameters can be passed:

    mode=

    Possible values are 0 (round robin policy, default) and 1 (active backup
    policy), and 2 (XOR). See question 9 and the HA section for additional info.

    miimon=

    Use integer value for the frequency (in ms) of MII link monitoring. Zero value
    is default and means the link monitoring will be disabled. A good value is 100
    if you wish to use link monitoring. See HA section for additional info.

    downdelay=

    Use integer value for delaying disabling a link by this number (in ms) after
    the link failure has been detected. Must be a multiple of miimon. Default
    value is zero. See HA section for additional info.

    updelay=

    Use integer value for delaying enabling a link by this number (in ms) after
    the “link up” status has been detected. Must be a multiple of miimon. Default
    value is zero. See HA section for additional info.

    arp_interval=

    Use integer value for the frequency (in ms) of arp monitoring. Zero value
    is default and means the arp monitoring will be disabled. See HA section
    for additional info. This field is value in active_backup mode only.

    arp_ip_target=

    An ip address to use when arp_interval is > 0. This is the target of the
    arp request sent to determine the health of the link to the target.
    Specify this value in ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd format.

    If you need to configure several bonding devices, the driver must be loaded
    several times. I.e. for two bonding devices, your /etc/conf.modules must look
    like this:

    alias bond0 bonding
    alias bond1 bonding

    options bond0 miimon=100
    options bond1 -o bonding1 miimon=100
