I have made a decision after 7 years of hosting using Cpanel I’m going to do an entire public server using virtualmin pro. I build and configure my own servers and rack them in a local datacenter.
My only concerns are I am so used to CSF for a firewall front end that I might be a little lost for a while with the virtualmin equivalent.
Reasons for switching it up… I love Nginx and I love Ubuntu and WHM doesn’t support it. I don’t see why everyone isn’t using Nginx.
So I might be asking a few unusual questions next month, all the parts for the next server will be in before the beginning of February.
First dumb question, WHM is so paranoid about licensing and IP that I have to load minimal CentOS and rack it so I can use the real IP before loading WHM.
Can I load and configure Virtualmin in my basement then just change the IP at the rack? Would save tons of time away from home. I plan on buying it first of course.
Thanks, this is going to be a blast-
