Which free control panel would you use for a production site?

ArkasArkas Member, Moderator

I know this has been asked many times, even by me, but I'd like to focus on production sites.
Would you use one? If Yes/No, then why?
I haven't used a free panel for a production site, just for testing small web projects.
I was really interested in Cyberpanel, but it left some security concerns, then I dabbled with VestaCP, which unfortunately doesn't seem to be supported anymore by its creators, so now I am looking at HestiaCP.
You?
Thanks.

    CyberPanel is one of the best options for free imo, it's come a long way over the past year.

    Yet, OpenLiteSpeed crashes for me from time to time when I use CyberPanel :(

    What is the point of asking this question when details such as: what kind of service you're looking to install this panel? What operating system would be using, etc. are not mentioned?

    What are the server specifications? aapanel is very lightweight but there may be others, which require a lot more horsepower.

    You just mentioned small projects. What are they: PHP based projects you're looking to run, or a content management system, or an an image editing service on it.

    So much information missing!!

    I asked the cyberpanel dev on discord last year, he said they were engaging rack911 to audit their panel, not sure what is the progress on that.

    Production site?
    When I was an operations intern in 2008, we use the built-in management console of Microsoft IIS.
    It's free to us because we are Microsoft.

    Just my suggestion, just install openlitespeed & lsphp directly, you get a web panel to manage vhost creation, offload email, waf & dns to third party, everything else through command line, you can then shut down the webpanel to run headless then you will have a secure installation for production.

    They even provide a script - https://openlitespeed.org/kb/1-click-install/
