    Centos Web Panel vs Vestacp

    I want to have a free option beside paid hosting panel is plesk which I am using for my blog sites. I checked some suggestions on this forum and selected two free hosting panels are Centos Web Panel and Vestacp but I don't know which is better and stable, no bugs or issues. Can you share me your thoughts or what are pros or cons of Centos Web Panel and Vestacp?

    I have set up centos web panel for a customer, and I think it would work good for what you are looking for. It is not ideal for using it as a web hosting company but for an individual with multiple sites it would work well. I did not like the way you had to create a site and then a user account, it is not very straight forward. Vestacp looks pretty good but I've never used it.

    I have never used either personally, but have head good things about both.

    I don't think there is a real "_____ is better". Simply compare their features, try both, betermin which is better for you.

    I installed and used bot Centos Web Panel and Vestacp for somedays and I found that they had issues. As Centos Web Panel, it didn't have a file manager or I have to upgrade php and mysql to newer version. it likes a product that not be updated by its developers. For Vestacp, it is hard to use if you see its control panel for the first time and it has some issuses that users are complaining about it.

    I saw a person reported the problem that he faced when installed Vestacp here http://forumweb.hosting/14383-the-httpd-service-does-not-start-automatically-in-vestacp.html
    Seem you will have no support or problems can not be solved on free hosting panels thus I would recommend going with a paid panel as Plesk, cPanel or Directadmin.

    one of my clients had VestaCP installed and migrating him to my Centmin Mod LEMP stack instead and had an opportunity to delve into VestaCP on CentOS 7 and I'm not too impressed for web server side. I wrote a full review on my site. But the gist of it is

    1. nginx installed uses system openssl 1.0.1e so no support for openssl 1.0.2+ which means no ALPN protocol support and no HTTP/2 based HTTPS support
    2. Apache 2.4.6 installed is actually a custom VestaCP provided 2.4.6-118 labeled yum package set. But it's based on 30+ month old 2.4.6-18 built on Dec, 2014 missing 30+ months of security and bug fix updates compared to Apache 2.4.25 latest and CentOS 7.3 Apache 2.4.6-45 built Nov 2016 !

    VestaCP provided Apache is missing fix for CVE-2016-5387 https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2016-5387 and https://httpoxy.org/
    It was discovered that httpd used the value of the Proxy header from HTTP requests to initialize the HTTP_PROXY environment variable for CGI scripts, which in turn was incorrectly used by certain HTTP client implementations to configure the proxy for outgoing HTTP requests. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to redirect HTTP requests performed by a CGI script to an attacker-controlled proxy via a malicious HTTP request.
