Ease the process of managing Linux installations remotely with the web-based Ajenti control panel.

Ajenti [1], an open source, web-based system control panel, lets you manage several important server management tasks with very little overhead. Think of it as a lightweight version of Webmin [2], the popular web-based administration tool.

You can use Ajenti for basic server monitoring, installing and removing packages, as well as managing services, the network, and more. It'll also help you remotely manage files on your server without firing up a terminal. In fact, if you want to get to the console, Ajenti will also give you a command-line interface inside the web browser itself.

The two Ajenti branches currently under development are Ajenti 2 and Ajenti V. Ajenti 2 offers a new lightweight interface developed with Python 3 and AngularJS. Ajenti V is a plugin that adds web hosting features to Ajenti, but currently only works on top of the previous version, Ajenti 1 (see the "Ajenti V Plugin" box).
