Does anyone know of any webmin programs other than Cpanel/WHM?

preferably something that doesn't cause as much overhead as Cpanel does...

and if it was free then that would be nice to...

thanks

Ironically, there is http://www.webmin.com

Otherwise there is Plesk and Ensim that are commercial packages.

In addition to those listed there are:
Direct Admin
Hspere

If cPanel were not available I would use, DirectAdmi, Hspere or Plesk in that order. Ensim, Interworx and Webmin are horrible in my opinion.

I like directadmin because you can get a lifetime licenese for $300. It's also easy to use.

If you want a free one, you can try ZPanel. I'm not sure how good it is since I've never used it.

I disagree with this statement. IMHO Cpanel's overhead only becomes an issue when your server's hardware is inadequate and/or the damn thing is doing too much. Eg: One hundred moderately busy sites pushing up to 100GB monthly bandwidth and 300K+ daily SQL queries on a P4 Celeron with 512MB RAM is going to problematic with no control panel.

well it depends...

when it comes down to having a control panel for a website that does use all of the features that it provides then yes its smart to go with the control panel...

In a situation where a server is dedicated to doing one taks (ex. MySQL) then what is the point in having a control panel.

That can also leave your system vulnerable since it has ports open that are not in use. As well as a CPU drainer (since the server is listening on ports that will not be used at all)...

Also when compiling software correctly (with the correct compiler that is benchmarked to your machine) then it can run much more efficiently.

So really it depends on what it is being used for. However most web developers dont really know much about the system side to servers so they simply pull up a control panel to install everything easily.

My company uses a control panel called Ensim.
http://www.ensim.com. They are one of the most secure and I've been with them since 2001, no problems.
