Best Platform For IMAP Mail (Cpanel, Plesk Linux Or Plesk Windows)

Nov 17, 2008

Best platform for IMAP mail (Cpanel, Plesk Linux or Plesk Windows)

I need to setup 5 email accounts on my domain, each will use IMAP and store messages on server, so total space taken by each account will be 2-5 GB.

I have decided to go with as I'm close to them and ping is fast.

What is the best solution for IMAP and large email accounts: Linux Cpanel, Linux Plesk or Windows Plesk?

Each account will be accessed by 2 people differently by Thunderbird and occasionally by webmail, so nice webmail is a plus.

CPanel/Plesk Or SSH

Apr 15, 2009

I'm having a small dilemma at the moment as I have never admined a server via SSH only, though following a well written Perfect Server guide might help. As the topic states, would you recommend using a control panel to manage a dedicated server (for one person), or would you recommend using SSH management and setting up the services there?

I have never tried to perform the latter option but would really like to as I'm a complete Linux noob Ok well maybe not complete, I know more than most people do, but I'm far less proficient than those who actually use and like the system on a daily basis.

Vps - Cpanel Or Plesk

Apr 20, 2008

I'm thinking of taking out a new VPS but am unsure of whether to go with CPanel or Plesk.

I have used CPanel with WHM & it works really well. I have read that it does take up a lot of memory & as I'm going for a low end VPS - with 348mb to start with, I was wondering about Plesk, which is also offered by the hosts.

Is Plesk more memory-friendly?

Does Plesk operate in the same way as CPanel - offering Admin as in WHM & easily configurable client panels?

CPanel Vs Plesk

Nov 10, 2008

as a newbie moving up to VPS hosts from shared hosts. I'm looking for a bit of advice on which would be the best to go for.?

i have used cPanel before & found it very easy to use, BUT have never used Plesk, only via their web site using the Demo panel & also found it easy to use...
what im looking to host is a small community forums & hopefully a small game server on the same host to run ET "Enemy Territory"

Ive been told that ET can be installed on cPanel easily but when looking at the demo of plesk in Modules, it shows a couple of game servers but not ET. could anyone please say if plesk is also capable of running this game or not..
also as a newbie which of the 2 control panels would be the best for me.?

Convert From Plesk VPS To CPanel VPS

Oct 7, 2009

I mostly work with cPanel/WHM but, I have to work with Plesk for just one client of mine. He's on Plesk becoz I came to know Plesk worked better on 256MB VPS than cPanel in the early days. Hence, on my recommendation, he is on Plesk on a 512 MB Memory VPS till now for all these years.

I wonder how tedious it might be to convert from Plesk to cPanel? The client basically uses Joomala + vBulletin and runs forums as of now.

Also, which CP will perform better on 512 MB VPS - Plesk or cPanel.

Plesk Vs. CPanel RAM Usage

Apr 20, 2007

I have read that cPanel consumes a constant 258MB of RAM. That seems like a huge overhead for the convenience it provides.

Plesk consumes less? How much?

This is to run LAMP -- so what I want to know is how much RAM is the minimum needed to run LAMP under different control panels. (The bandwidth of the sites to be run is low.)

Migration Of Emails From Plesk 8.x To Cpanel 11.x

Jun 26, 2009

I´m gonna migrate my server with Plesk 8.4 to Cpanel 11.24 in the next days using a manual method (account transfer failed in my test, i guess it is not fully functional).

Creation of accounts and migration of databases is already done, but i have some doubts with email account transfers:

1) Cpanel and Plesk, share the maildir format for messages. A transfer of email messages should be smooth, just copying the data of this directory´s.

Plesk directory: /var/qmail/mailnames/
Cpanel directory: /home/domain/mail/

Is it ok?

2) Is there any way of migrate usernames/passwords to cpanel without recreate accounts (with a new password) and copy the email messages?

Plesk Vs. Cpanel And Their Mailinglist Possibilities

Aug 15, 2007

I'm about to purchase a VPS package with a host who offers the option to choose a control panel with Plesk or Cpanel.

I look into both programs and their features and they look both pretty good to me.

Something i will really need for the website is an easy way to create mailinglist out of a MySQL 5 database, so would it be possible with Plesk or Cpanel to read the email addresses out of a database and send them in a queue?

Does Plesk or Cpanel provide this option in the standard version or do you have have to purchase an add-on for that ? Or is there another way to do this for example using a webservice to insert the data for the list.

My server configuration: Linux/Apache, MySQL 5, PHP 5, PhpMyAdmin.

Other consideration to go for Plesk or Cpanel?

CPanel Or Plesk To Preserve Resources

Aug 17, 2007

I have a VPS that gives me

Disk Space 30 GB

Bandwidth 900 GB

Guaranteed RAM 512 MB

IPs 5

My Problem is that I can't run webstats or my RAM maxes out causing all kinds of problems. Normally my privvmpages is around 200,000 out of an allocation of 500,000 but with webstats on that goes through the roof.

What can I do? Do I have to get more RAM? I can buy more ram but it is kind of pricey.

Would switching to Plesk solve my problem? I heard it uses less resources. But I have never used it before.

Install Cpanel Backup Into Plesk

Sep 6, 2007

I'm going from a reseller account that used cPanel to a dedicated server using Plesk. I don't have access to anything on the cPanel server (long story), but the host said they will create a cPanel backup for me. Is it possible to install this into Plesk? I know it's possible to do a migration from a cPanel server to Plesk, which requires root access that I don't have and can't get, so this cPanel backup is the best I've got.

Ports To Open For Web Server (PLESK, CPanel, Etc.)

Mar 11, 2008

Our new data center provided us with a Cisco ASA5510 firewall. We're setting up all new servers and will begin migrating all of our domains from our current co-lo to the new place.

At the old co-lo, they provided us a very basic BSD based router, and our servers all had external public facing IPs on them. Firewalling was handled at the server (Windows Firewall or Linux IPtables).

The new place is NAT'ing us, so our servers all have a 192.168.10.x address inside, and they map the external address for us through to the inside.

By default, they are locking everything down. I had to ask them to open ssh so I could remote into my CentOS box last night.

I'm not a network guru-- what ports are going to NEED to be opened so I can give them a list? This is a standard PLESK hosting server so http (80), https, ssh, ftp, pop3, smtp, what else? Anyone have a list?
