Anyone here use Plesk for their hosting control panel? I switched from cPanel/WHM back in July because I was tired of being unable to properly test SMF on semi-recent versions of PostgreSQL (centOS uses whatever old version the folks at Redhat decide to support, even if it's not one currently supported by Postgres themselves - one of the annoying things about "enterprise" Linux).

Plesk supports a wide range of distros, so I moved to a new VPS (same host) with Ubuntu Sever 18.04 LTS. I've actually come to like Plesk a lot more than cPanel/WHM - it's a lot more flexible (tons of extensions available) and you don't have two different panels - everything goes through one place and what you see depends on what level of access the logged in user has.

Always used cpanel myself, and a few of the free panels I have tested. I do like to use webuzo for some stuff on a VPS, but it is only a single user panel, but you can have multiple  domains on it.

I have never used Plesk. I have used a few custom control panels that some places used to use but that was a long time ago. Webmin I think was one. Mostly WHM/Cpanel.

I'd never used Plesk before I switched over in July. It took a little bit to get used to it, but it's pretty user friendly and more powerful than cPanel/WHM in my opinion.

More power is always good. :rgton

I've bit the bullet and have installed Plesk on a VPS about 2 months ago. Been plagued with problems, mostly from using the KernelCare extension and not properly setting up the main domain's account. I didn't have a lot of time to really play with it but think I've got things under control...for the moment. :rflmao

I think I've just got to get used to it as it is very different from cPanel. I am hoping to start offering it as an alternative to cPanel for my customers. :)

I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

LOL, I don't know if it has more power or not just yet. But I did manage to fix a number of issues, finally! :rgton

Now maybe I can start trying to install a forum or blog on it...

Got WP installed on it although it was an automated process. Here's the main site and the WP site:

Now that I see sites will show I'll try to install a SMF site on it manually. I did have to install PHP 7.2 since it only came with 7.3 and 7.4, by default. Not sure if smf will work with 7.3 or not on Plesk yet.

You've gone all out on that wordpress theme  :D  :D  :P  :P  8)
