I'll try to be more explicit on my requirements. I'm not worried about mail. I'm mostly worried about web. Each client has a web site with one or more domains. I currently offer them apache+php+mysql+mod_perl+mod_ssl. One of them needs java server pages, tomcat I think. Everyone gets access to their own logs and to geolizer (webalizer). Some clients would like shell access. Most clients write their web site using ftp. Certain ones need also the MS Front Page Extensions. Some clients want an ftp upload area. Ssl poses a special problem in that I need to allocate an ip address for those who have their own ssl certificate. It's pretty much all standard stuff.
But yes, I totally agree with you, it is an administration nightmare to set up separate jails and keep track of which has which version of what and so on. There must be an easier way to do this. Some of you folks who run hosting sites, how do you manage large numbers of clients? Michael Grant On 5/9/06, Subhro <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:

This is going to create a HELL lot of problems later on, especially during upgrades. BTW can you tell us your exact requirements?
