    hello
    i am extremely happy with the work done with centmin and i intend to use it even more.

    now i would like to set a new server with centmin mod and since there would be a group of people managing it i would like to use some kind of panel to manage it.
    this panel
    was suggested by a friend but you may have something else to suggest as well
    also i need the server to be able to handle all email done by the site so i need your advice on that as well.

    please let me know of any thoughts on how to procceed or what should i do

    thank you :D

    Thanks for the kind words :)

    Unfortunately, Centmin Mod made with the intention of not using any panels like that so it's not supported and could cause conflicts between the panel and how it assumes where config files and services are and where Centmin Mod installs and configures them. See FAQ item 1 & 2 on official site with regards to panels and shared hosting. If you're sharing hosting or management of the server, then Centmin Mod isn't ideal for that situation unless you really really trust the other system level admins for shared hosting/management part - as there is no user isolation in Centmin Mod.

    Also I have no intention of doing any local email pop3/imap support on Centmin Mod as I don't want to bother with troubleshooting mail delivery issues as there's so many factors outside of my control as to why mail isn't delivered on the internet. I don't plan on providing any free support for such email related matters either. So best to use 3rd party email providers for @yourdomain.com emails for best uptime, reliability, security and anti-spam and email user management. See a list of recommendations at Email - Free @yourdomain.com Email Accounts & Alternatives

    Nice for Ubuntu/Debian I see.. guess if it's remote email server doesn't matter. I prefer 3rd party email providers, less hassle, more uptime, security, anti-spam management and more portable. You can switch servers without worrying about transferring email and resetting it up :)
