Check out the official Control Panel Demo, available at this page.
Let's take a look at the administrative interface of the panel, it has two main blocks of controls
The first block contains drop-down menus for admin tasks, such as file manager, IP server settings, load charts, system logs, update and server settings:
*"File Manager " - the control panel has a built-in file manager, now you do not need to connect via FTP using FileZilla, and you can upload files and edit configs through the browser
"Log " - displays records of actions that were performed in the account.
"Statistics " - you can see month by month how many domains have been added, etc. You can see a summary report as well as by user.
"Server Configuration " - Here you can configure or restart apache or nginx, rename the server name, configure connected modules
"Graphs " - section is designed to monitor server load in terms of time - day, week, month, year.
In addition to the LA graph, there are graphs for disk, memory and traffic consumption.
"IP " - the IP where the control panel is running is specified here.
"Update " - the updates section of the Panel itself. Here you can see current versions of components, apply available updates, enable or disable their automatic application.
"Restart " - here you can restart the server
The second block contains settings sections for the most popular and typical server operations, where you can add a site, a mailbox and a database, and set up backups:
In "USER " section you can create a new user and assign or remove an administrator
By default, a user "admin " with system administrator rights is created in the control panel.
In the section "WEB " new sites are added that will be located on the server in the future. When adding a new site we can configure SSL including Let's Encrypt with integrated installation, create FTP user, connect system to collect site statistics.
In this section, you can take advantage of a quick installation of an available application, or CMS, to your site.
Under "MAIL " we can fully create and manage mailboxes for each domain. The RoundCube is used as the web interface. When adding a domain, there is support for anti-spam solution, antivirus scanning, as well as creating DKIM records to prevent your mailings from getting into the receiving user's spam.
Under "DB " you can create databases. When you create a database, you can specify where the data information will be sent to connect.
The "CRON " section is where you manage scripting schedules. Here you can add a task, as well as perform operations on existing schedules.
The "BACKUP " section is where the backups are. By default, the control panel makes 1 copy, each new one replaces the previous one.
From backups you can restore separately database, mail, domain settings or site files. You can do it all at once.
Also, the "HOTKEYS " hotkeys are very helpful when working with the panel, making it easy to navigate through the menus and perform keyboard controls. To open a list of all available hotkeys, use h on your keyboard or one of the buttons in the lower right corner of the screen.
