1) What is this project for?
Our intent is to write a complete new code from scratch for this web application and make it public.

2) What are the differences between the old package and this new code?
Everything is different. The first code works very well, is a reliable and simple tool that we have been using for many years but has nothing to do with the new one.
The version 2.0 is a complete new design, a more ambitious project and the result of a greater experience.

3) What are the plans for the public release?
We imagine the code will be taken by hundreds of programmers and developers to improve it. We imagine teams creating and taking care of alternative packages. Or users providing translations or new plugins. Others working on a Nginx package. Possibilities are many.

4) What are the main benefits of the new code?
Main benefits are: The freedom to use and adapt a GPL web hosting solution. Costs reduction for companies of any size. Extreme flexibility adding features as plugins. Simplicity and lightness.

5) Let’s say I’m interested. What about the support?
This is something that will evolve with the software. GNUPanel is meant to be simple, many providers will get support from their own staff. Others will get support from the official forums to be started.
We will certainly provide support but there will be many jobs opportunities. For instance those working on a RPM package could provide support. Others will provide support in a specific language or for large companies.

6) What is the difference with CPanel, Plesk, ISPconfig, Webmin and many others?
Every development is valuable and carries solutions to its public. GNUPanel is focused on adaptability, simplicity and freedom.

Thank GNUtransfer the loan us a VPS and other resources to write this article.

On some servers where it is installed GNUPanel mail traffic is very high and that makes amavis consume many resources, which results in a decline in the quality of service apache, pdns, proftpd, etc.
In this article we will see how to do to run amavis, clamav and spamassassin on a separate server.
Before we start we should clarify that while not mandatory, the most convenient is that the IPs that communicate by postfix (on the main server) and amavis (antispam server) is to be private, either through a separate network or as we have done for example through a VPN, for which we use openvpn with the following howto.
