    Hello everyone, I have hosted many websites for the past 5 years, and I used Centmin Mod for some. I'm looking for a free alternative to Centmin Mod to play around with on my home server and host a couple websites.

    The fact that Centmin mod has no GUI makes me a little difficult since i'm not professional at using the ssh terminal. I would learn a new one which can be better and easier?

    Well, in that case you should go for GUI based panels like :

    • VestaCP
    • CentosWebpanel
    • CyberPanel
    • KloxoMR

    But, My favourite is trellis :

    Hi,
    Check out VestaCP!

    Should do it if you'd like to host a couple of websites, design isn't bad too.

    Atul,

    If need security go with ISPConfig. Its really the best if u need it free.
    Else, you can go with directadmin.

    If you want lightweight Bash script tool for setup WordPress servers there is only few ones with strong features and maintenance like:

    • CentminMod
    • SlickStack
    • EasyEngine (now Docker if using after v4 versions)
    • Webinoly (copy EasyEngine v3)
    • WordOps (fork of EasyEngine v3)
    • VPSSIM
    • HocVPS
    But Centminmod, VPSSIM, and HocVPS are more general and not WordPress focus. Actually, Webinoly also focus little bit on static sites too, etc.

    SlickStack, WordOps maybe the easy ones currently for advanced user who is not expert about programming and Linux etc.

    And some of them also including WP-CLI also for some easy WordPress CLI commands if you want (but not necessary to use it too).

    GUI is really overrated and actually will make more security problems, bloated code, etc. Its very easy to learn basic Bash commands after study for few days only.

    If you really must keep the UI and want like cPanel copycat, well its not lightweight but some options:

    • cPanel
    • Plesk
    • Virtualmin
    • VestaCP
    • Webmin
    • ISPconfig
    • Cloudmin
    • Directadmin
    • CentOS web panel (CWP)
    • etc
    There are so so many UI for shared hosting (shared server) control panels now. But many security risks and you must take carefully about that.
