cPanel, aaPanel and SELinux.

Post by hack3rcon » 2020/07/19 10:40:59

Hello,
Anybody here recommending cPanel or aaPanel?
What is the usage of aaPanel? Just one click to install LAMP or LEMP?
Why no SELinux policy exist for cPanel or aaPanel and I must disable SELinux?
Any alternative?

Thank you.

IMHO, clickety clack, GUI crap.

An abstraction layer can be a great convenience and let one avoid trivial mistakes. However, it can also unnecessarily limit choices and most likely does not require for the user to know and understand the principles behind the available choices.

*Panel are not from Red Hat or CentOS. They will not provide a policy for something that they do not provide, nor support.
If a *Panel does not provide SELinux policy, but requires disabling SELinux instead, then *Panel looks very sloppy product.

"just one click" sounds "I don't want to know". I might have bad attitude, but I consider that a worse attitude.
Those acronyms might very well require some custom data that no single click can supply.

There is cockpit in the base repository https://www.redhat.com/sysadmin/intro-cockpit
No idea what it does.

We do not recommend or support any panel software here. Almost without exception they all do horrible things, replace CentOS provided packages and generally get in the way.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

Thank you.
How about Webmin? Can it offer cPanel features?
