My straw vote would be Debian proper for a major failover backup plan. Of course, targeting Debian should get you broad compatibility with other Debian-derived OSes such as Ubuntu.

But the whole RHEL kerfuffle has caused me to re-survey the landscape and I will now re-evaluate SUSE, which I last used back in the early 2000s. It would seemingly be the best direct alternative to the EL branch of distros, since it too qualifies as a conservative enterprise distro.

All software for Linux is now moving towards Ubuntu. 99% of Linux software packages seem to have at least an Ubuntu install package and everyone has heard of it.

But I will definitely watch this space as I am more a windows man than Linux, yet!!!

If using Alma or Rocky becomes a problem, CWP should consider moving to Ubuntu.

Ubuntu is equal to Stream. It's a beta version to Debian.

NOT for production use.

Only Debian is used in production environments for stability.

There needs to be a good control panel for FreeBSD.

It's the only operating system since the beginning that hasn't had any problems.

Again, Leave it up to IBM to mess things up.

Ajenti has always been on my list of a panel to try, and it has experimental support for FreeBSD:

And of course, Webmin runs on FreeBSD:

And maybe you would count TrueNAS (née FreeNAS) as a web GUI for admin duties for FreeBSD, but of course, it's more LAN storage-focused, but I could imagine extending it to include other server duties.

This is my list of cPanel alternatives

I still have a few to add but any that I have missed I can add.

Thanks, that's a nice comprehensive list! I haven't surveyed the landscape in at least 5 years. Back when I migrated out of cPanel land, CWP was the obvious choice because it provided the clearest, most direct transition path from expen$$$ive cPanel servers over to my own dedicated servers with CWP Pro.

If starting up a new server fresh, I may give that list a more comprehensive look and test drive some of the other alternative panels. Certainly a dedicated server could do with one of the other panels vs. one that supports reselling. But a lot of it comes down to the knowledge base of the admin and how much down-n-dirty behind the panel work is required to configure & keep it running smoothly.

It does for 2 reasons.

1. AlmaLinux is basically the free version of CloudLinux.
(Allot of developers work on both projects)

2. For some odd reason Rocky is missing some binaries.
